Senate Page Program

Thank you for your interest in the United States Senate Page Program. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Click here to download the application.

Page eligibility is limited to high school juniors who will be 16 or 17 years old on or before the date of the appointment. Pages live in Washington, D.C., and learn about and contribute to the legislative branch of the federal government. Senate page duties consist primarily of delivery of correspondence and legislative material within the Congressional complex. Other duties include preparing the chamber for Senate sessions, and carrying bills and amendments to the desk. Pages also attend classes in the early morning at the United States Senate Page School. The Page School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

Students may apply for the fall, spring, or summer sessions. The summer session is the most competitive. There are only 30 Pages appointed in the Senate each semester and the privilege of making these appointments is based on seniority. Not all Senators are able to appoint Pages. Due to the limited number of positions and the volume of interested students, appointments to the Page Program are particularly competitive.
