Military Academy Nominations
One of the greatest privileges a Member of Congress is to nominate worthy candidates to attend one of our nation's great service academies. The 53rd District always has a wealth of potential candidates seeking a limited number of nominations. In order to forward the most well-rounded candidates to the academies, I use a competitive nomination system that includes a written application and oral interview with a selection board.
The application process for the class of 2021 begins April 1, 2016. I recommend that potential candidates begin the application process the summer before their senior year of high school. If you’re interested in attending a service academy and live in the 53rd District, download my application for a nomination. (You’ll need the Adobe Acrobat Reader to open this document.) Following submission of an application, applicants will be contacted to schedule an interview. If you have questions about any part of the nomination process, please call my service academy liaison at (619) 280-5353.
