SUMMER SCHOOL SESSIONS

Three sessions of the Junior Statesmen Summer School are conducted on the prestigious university campuses of Stanford (near San Francisco), Princeton (in central New Jersey), and Georgetown (in Washington, D.C.). Summer School students take college level courses in Government and Speech, while they develop and polish their leadership skills. Highlighting each Summer School session is a high-level speakers program, which gives students a chance to meet and question elected officials, judges, reporters, political campaign

consultants, and others in the political arena. Each night, Summer School students debate controversial political issues in JSA Debate Workshop, which is a simulation of the debates held in the United States

Congress.

Admission to JSA Summer Schools is very competitive. Admission decisions are based on an applicant’s

academic achievement, leadership, and interest in politics or government. To apply, students submit an

official high school transcript, personal essays, and a letter of recommendation from a counselor or an

academic teacher.

Tuition, which covers all academic expenses, housing and meals for the month, is $5,350 for the JSA

Programs located at Georgetown, Princeton and Stanford. Transportation to the summer school is not

included in the tuition.

For the past twenty-six years, the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Office of Insular Affairs has offered full tuition and transportation scholarships to the Junior Statesmen Summer School to outstanding high school students in U.S. territories and Freely Associated States. [/restrict]
