Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) invited Hudson Valley students to take part in a U.S. Service Academy Info Session on Saturday, June 5, at 1:30 PM, on the front lawn of Rep. Maloney’s Newburgh office at 123 Grand Street, Newburgh, NY, 12550. The session will help inform prospective U.S. Service Academy applicants about the application process, including the Congressional nomination system.
“Service Academies take the best and brightest and develop them into future leaders in the armed forces. They provide full, four-year scholarships for a high-quality education that will prepare young men and women for a lifetime of leadership and service to our country,” said Rep Maloney. “I encourage all Hudson Valley students and parents who are interested in one of the academies to attend the session, so they can get a head start on this highly competitive application process.”
There are four U.S. Service Academies that require nomination from a Member of Congress:
- United States Military Academy at West Point, NY
- United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, MD
- United States Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, CO
- United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings’ Point, NY
Representatives from each of the U.S. Service Academies will deliver presentations, and Congressman Maloney will be there to contribute remarks. A member of Maloney’s staff will present the Service Academy Nomination Application process for his office.
