DEARBORN, MI – Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) hosted a Military Service Academy Information Session in Belleville, MI to give high school students and their families an opportunity to meet veterans and service academy representatives. Dingell’s office provided information about the service academy nomination process. 

Photos from the event are available here.

“Young people are our future. Southeast Michigan is home to many future leaders and it is an honor to nominate the best and brightest to become leaders in our military,” said Dingell. “Every student has their own unique story and skills. Nominating students ensures that our military is ready to tackle any challenge and task. Providing students with the opportunity to hear directly from the services academies makes the process more open and approachable.”

Dingell has the honor of nominating up to 10 individuals for each available slot allotted to her district to each of the US Military Service Academies, which are:

  • US Military Academy in West Point, NY;
  • US Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD; and
  • US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO.

The US Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY does not require Congressional nomination.

Interested students should apply for nomination through Dingell’s office in Dearborn by October 15. Applications must include:

  • A Completed Academy Nomination Application form, available here,
  • A personal statement of interest,
  • High school and/or college transcripts,
  • Copy of SAT or ACT score, and
  • Three letters of recommendation.
