Information on How to Apply

The application process differs across Senators’ offices, but commonly requires a letter of interest from the prospective page, an official transcript, and letters of recommendation from teachers, mentors, or supervisors.

Students who wish to apply for a Senate page position and meet the eligibility requirements listed may find their senators’ websites using the link below. Many offices provide information on their application process online, however not all senators sponsor pages. Students should contact their senators’ offices directly if they need further guidance. The Page Program does not have a list of senators who are able to sponsor pages.

Students who are interested in the legislative process, and are seeking an opportunity for personal growth, are encouraged to apply to their senators’ offices.
