In early spring, NYU's Office of Government and Community Affairs and the John Brademas Center for the Study of Congress host a trip to Washington, DC, giving students a chance to voice their support for key federal student aid programs on Capitol Hill.

Your presence on the Hill reinforces to Members of Congress how important federal student aid programs are, both for NYU students like yourselves and for others all around the country.

During the trip, participants have a unique opportunity to meet Members of Congress and their staff face to face, voicing your opinions on federal financial assistance, and learning about the intricacies of the political atmosphere of Capitol Hill.

Leading up to the trip, our Government Relations staff will train you in the basics of effective lobbying for causes that matter to you. We will also give you an insider's overview of the overall federal policy landscape, with a focus on higher education policy and student aid.

Transportation, food, and lodging are provided. Usually, up to 25 applicants are accepted, with priority given to recipients of federal financial assistance. Selected student participants will be required to attend a briefing session the week prior to the trip.

NYU in DC Day 2015

On April 1, 2015 20 NYU students joined the trip meeting with Members of Congress to share their experiences with financial aid programs.  Check out pictures from last year's trip.  If you are interested in politics, advocacy, and supporting financial aid then plan to join us next year for a day-long trip to the nation's capitol to meet with your legislators. All transportation and meals are provided.
