Congressman David Scott Accepting Applications for U.S. Military Academy Nominations

Today, Congressman David Scott announced his office is accepting applications from students seeking a congressional nomination for military academies. A congressional nomination is required for students to attend the U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Military Academy at West Point, U.S. Naval Academy or U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

“Each year I have the honor of nominating exceptional students who are eager to attend a U.S. Military Academy and serve our country,” said Congressman Scott. “Service academies provide our students a distinguished and rigorous education valued at over $400,000. I strongly encourage Thirteenth District students to contact my office to learn more about the unique opportunities our military academies offer and to apply for a congressional nomination.”

To be considered for an appointment to a service academy, an applicant must be nominated from an authorized person, including a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives or Senate.  Applicants must also apply directly with the academies and meet the following requirements as of July 1 of the year of admission to a service academy: be at least 17 years old and not older than 23; a U.S. citizen; a legal resident of Georgia’s Thirteenth Congressional District; unmarried; not pregnant; and have no legal obligation to support children or other dependents.

The deadline to apply for an academy nomination from Congressman David Scott is Friday, October 25, 2019.   Students may obtain an application and more information on the nomination process by visiting or calling Congressman Scott’s office at 770-210-5073.
