This two-week program in Lexington, Kentucky, and Washington, D.C. is an ideal academic and professional experience for current college juniors interested in politics, public policy, law, and government.
The 12th annual College Student Congress will take place from June 6th to June 17th, 2022. Fifty-one students will be selected to attend – one student representing each state and the District of Columbia.
