SPRING 2020 


The U.S. Senate Page Program is a prestigious program that allows high school students from across the country to spend a semester living and working in Washington, D.C. Pages play an important role in the day-to-day operations of the U.S. Senate, witness historic debates on the Senate floor, and meet respected national leaders, all while continuing their high school education. Page duties largely consist of delivering correspondence, preparing the Senate chamber for sessions, and delivering bills and amendments to Senate staff. In addition to their work in the Senate, pages attend early morning classes in the fully accredited Page School. Pages live in the Senate Page Dormitory, located just a short walk away from the U.S. Capitol and are paid a small stipend. Deductions from the stipend are taken for taxes, a meal plan, and residence fees.

Senator Chris Murphy has been allocated a slot for the Spring 2020 United States Senate Page Program.

The dates for the spring term are January 27, 2020 to June 5, 2020.
