U.S. Service Academy Nominations
U.S. Service Academy Application Process
Welcome to my application page for the U.S. Service Academies. The honor of attending a service academy comes with a free four-year education along with the obligation and commitment to serve in active duty upon graduation.
The academy nomination process requires that you apply through your Congressional offices and directly to the academies for an actual appointment. As part of the process, you are required to contact the appropriate academy or academies and complete all requirements. Applying to all of the academies may improve your chances of receiving at least one appointment offer. If you have not already contacted the academy of your choice, I would encourage you to do so as soon as possible to ensure you have all the necessary information for applying.
To meet with various academy representatives and learn more about my application process, I welcome you to attend my Military Academy Information Day that will take place on Saturday, September 7th from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Lebanon-Laclede County Library. While registration is not required, it is appreciated, and you can do so here.
Please note: your "permanent address" or "legal residence" must be located in Missouri’s 4th Congressional District in order to apply for a nomination through my office. You or your parent/guardian must be domiciled in the Missouri’s 4th Congressional District. Domicile is defined as a person’s fixed, permanent, and principal home for legal purposes.
My application for 2019 is available here. Completed applications must be received in my Harrisonville office by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 4th. Postmarks are not sufficient. For more information, please contact Rachel Gilroy in my Harrisonville office by email at Rachel.Gilroy@mail.house.gov or by phone at 816-884-3411.
Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country!
Very Truly Yours,
Member of Congress
