LWVS SIA 2024 Application and Instructions
Students may open and copy the application to edit and then submit via email to

LWVS invites high school students to submit applications to attend the Students Inside Albany (SIA) Conference. Any 10th grade, 11th grade, or 12th grade student who attends Scarsdale High School or who resides in the school district is eligible to apply.

This year, the New York State LWV Education Foundation and LWV of Scarsdale will fund the expenses for at least one highly qualified Scarsdale student, selected from an outstanding pool of applicants. The conference will continue to be free for students to attend.

The program is designed to immerse students in the process by which public policy is proposed, enacted and changed in New York State and educate them as to how they can influence and affect this process. Traditionally, the conference brings approximately 60 students from across the state to Albany to get a first-hand education about their state government. The highlight for most students is the opportunity to shadow their state representatives, with many students getting the opportunity to attend a session on the chamber floor. Follow this link to the LWVNYS pamphlet for additional information.

Scarsdale students who attended this program in the past were unanimous in their enthusiasm about the program. Follow this link to read an article about SIA written by Scarsdale’s two student representatives who attended the in-person conference held in 2019.
