Nomination deadline for academies is Oct. 6

RBC I Congressman Scott Tipton’s (CO-03) office is currently accepting applications from students who are interested in attending a United States Service Academy in 2015.

Each year, members of Congress are able to nominate a limited number of people from their districts to the U.S. Service Academies—including the Air Force, West Point, Annapolis and Merchant Marine. The honor of attending a service academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation.
Rep. Tipton nominated 22 students from the 3rd Congressional District in 2014 to U.S. service academies. The students selected met and exceeded the stringent requirements of the respective academy and of Tipton’s office.
Students who applied were required to submit an essay, test scores, an application, letters of recommendation, transcripts and complete an in-person interview before a panel in order to be considered.
The deadline for applications is Oct. 6, and students should obtain an application and submit their information to Brian McCain with Tipton’s office at Brian.McCain@mail. house.gov or 719-542-1073.
