WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Ander Crenshaw today (9/13) noted that his office will continue to accept applications to the nation’s Service Academies until October 28.
“I strongly encourage interested students to reach out to my Jacksonville office for more information on how they can have the opportunity to be a part of one of our nation’s finest educational institutions. Attending the Military Academy at West Point, the Naval Academy at Annapolis, the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, or Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point is a distinct honor that can help lead a student down a path of success in life and to being a good citizen,” said Crenshaw. “Our service academies are vital in preparing today’s youth to assume the responsibility and leadership required to become our future military leaders. Northeast Florida students have been some of the best and the brightest, and I am always proud to nominate them to attend our nation’s service academies.”
Details of the application process can be found on Congressman Crenshaw’s official web site at www.crenshaw.house.gov or by calling his Jacksonville, Florida office at 904-598-0481 and asking for District Representative Nathan Riska.
Congressman Crenshaw's Military Academy Selection Committee will interview candidates in November. Selected nominees will be notified by the end of the year, and nominations will then be submitted to the academies. Service Academy Admissions Officers then review nominees' applications and select appointments in late spring. NOTE: No nomination is required to attend the U.S. Coast Guard Academy at New London, CT.
