United States Military Service Academy Nominations
NEWBURGH - Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced today his office is accepting applications for students from the Hudson Valley to seek a United States Service Academy nomination from his office. Rep. Maloney has the ability to nominate students to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, U.S. Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point. Students applying to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London do not need a Congressional nomination. In June, 13 students from the Hudson Valley accepted offers of appointment to one of the nation’s service academies.
“As your representative, it is my honor to be a small part of one of our country’s oldest traditions of nominating the Hudson Valley’s most accomplished and motivated young people for acceptance into a service academy,” said Maloney. “Service Academies like the U.S. Military Academy at West Point provide a top notch education while preparing young men and women for a life of selfless service to our country.”
Interested students must submit their completed applications to Rep. Maloney’s district office at 123 Grand Street in Newburgh, NY 12550, no later than October 11, 2014. All applicants who have submitted their completed application materials will be contacted to schedule their interview with Rep. Maloney’s Service Academy Selection Board.
The application process is open to all interested high school seniors in New York’s 18th Congressional District. Students are encouraged to research the specific academies on their respective websites for further information on the nomination and selection process.
