On April 10-11th, the NYU Office of Government Affairs and The John Brademas Center of NYU hosted a trip to Washington, DC for “DC Day 2019”. Students visited Capitol Hill to voice their support for key federal student aid programs. NYU's presence on the Hill reinforces to Members of Congress how important federal student aid programs are to students at New York University and around the country.
During this annual trip, participants have a unique opportunity to meet Members of Congress and their staff face-to-face, voicing their opinions on federal student financial assistance programs, while learning about the intricacies of the political atmosphere of Capitol Hill.
Approximately 30 students (undergraduate and graduate) are accepted to join the trip each year, 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. Transportation, food, and lodging are provided. Registration is currently closed for NYU DC Day 2019. If you are currently participating in Washington, DC, study away program, you are eligible to participate in all DC Day events.
