High School Seniors Interested in Military Service Academies Must Apply by October 15th

Congressman Dan Kildee is accepting applications from students in mid-Michigan who are seeking a United States Service Academy nomination from his office.

Students who are interested should visit the Congressman’s website to submit their application. The deadline to apply is October 15, 2018.

 “Every year, I have the honor of nominating young men and women from mid-Michigan to the United States Military Academies. Service Academies provide an outstanding education to their students while preparing young adults for service as officers in our Armed Forces. I encourage high school seniors who are interested to reach out to my office and apply,” said Congressman Kildee.
