WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Steve Stivers (R – Columbus) today invited high school students interested in obtaining a nomination to one of the United States Military Academies to attend one of the upcoming Service Academy Informational Seminars.
“As a Member of Congress, I have the privilege of nominating a limited number of students to our military service academies each year,” Stivers said. “These information sessions will provide interested students with more details on the schools they would be applying to, as well as how the application and interview process works.”
Interested students are invited to attend one of the three upcoming Academy Informational Seminars held by the Ohio Congressional and Senate delegation:
- COLUMBUS: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at The Ohio State University Agricultural Administrative Auditorium located at 2120 Fyffe Rd, Columbus, Ohio.
- LANCASTER: Thursday, May 8, 2014 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Fairfield County District Library located at 219 N. Broad Street, Lancaster, Ohio.
- HILLIARD: Tuesday, May 27, 2014 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Safety Services Building located at 5181 Northwest Parkway, Hilliard, Ohio.
A Congressional Nomination is needed to be considered by: The U.S. Air Force Academy, The U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, The U.S. Military Academy, The U.S. Naval Academy. A Congressional Nomination is not required to attend the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. Interested applicants should also apply directly to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.
Once students send in an application to Stivers’ Office, it will be reviewed to determine which students meet the qualification standards. Those students that meet the competitive standards will be interviewed by Stivers’ Academy Review Board. Please note students must start an application process with the academy they are applying to, as well as the nomination process through Stivers’ Office, and a nomination does not guarantee an appointment to an academy.
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.
