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.
