Service Academy Nominations

One of the greatest privileges a Member of Congress has 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.

This year’s application period has ended. Please check back in 2014 for information about next year’s application. I recommend that potential candidates begin the application process the summer before their senior year of high school.

If you have questions about any part of the nomination process, please call my service academy liaison, Brandon Primus, at (619) 280-5353.
