Senate Page Program
Senator Hassan has the honor to sponsor a page to serve in the United States Senate. Since Daniel Webster's first page appointment in 1829, the U.S. Senate has welcomed young students to the Senate floor to help carry out the day-to-day operations of the Senate. Pages play a vital role in supporting Senators including serving as messengers carrying bills, amendments, or documents, preparing the Senate Chambers for daily business, and assisting in the cloakrooms.
Pages attend the U.S. Senate Page School, which is located just blocks from the Capitol. The program is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and School. The program also includes a Field Studies component that allows pages to experience the cultural and educational activities offered in Washington, D.C.
Only 30 pages are selected per term and as such, not every Senator is able to sponsor a page. Pages can serve in one of four terms throughout the year: Fall, Spring, Summer I, and Summer II. The application for the Spring 2021 term can be found here.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Senate Page Board suspended the Senate Page Program in March and subsequently canceled both summer sessions and the fall semester. The Senate Page Board remains committed to the continuation of the Senate Page Program and looks forward to welcoming a new class of pages as soon as it is safe to do so. A decision regarding the status of the 2021 Spring Semester will be made in November.
Senator Hassan’s office is pleased to accept applications for the 2021 Spring Semester; however, a page selection will be made only if the Senate Page Board announces that the spring semester will commence as scheduled.
