Today Congressman David Scott (D-GA) announced that he is currently accepting applications for nomination to our nation’s military service academies.
“The privilege of nominating qualified students to the Naval, Air Force, Merchant Marine and Army Academies is one of my most important and rewarding responsibilities,” said Congressman Scott. “The education provided at our nation’s prestigious service academies is of the highest quality and offers challenges that develop our young people into future leaders.”
Students who are residents of Georgia’s Thirteenth Congressional District and interested in nomination to the United States Naval Academy, United States Air Force Academy, United States Merchant Marine Academy or the United States Military Academy may obtain applications through Scott’s District Office or online at www.house.gov/davidscott. Candidates for nomination must be U.S. citizens and at least 17 years old but not have passed their 23rd birthday on July 1 of the year of admission. Applicants must also be unmarried, not pregnant, and have no legal obligation to support children or other dependents.
Applicants will be evaluated by their academic performance, leadership ability, moral character, adequacy of preparation, and commitment to attend a service academy. All completed applications must be received by Monday, October 16, 2006 in Congressman Scott’s Jonesboro Office.
“The process toward achieving a nomination is a long and arduous one,” said Scott. “I commend the commitment of students working toward reaching this goal and wish each applicant the very best of success in achieving it.”
