Application deadline Friday

 Young men and women from the Northern Marianas, who are interested in an exceptional college education at no cost and are committed to serving our country should apply now for a congressional nomination to one of the U.S. service academies. There are openings for the Marianas at the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, and the U.S. Military Academy for next year’s incoming class, as a result of legislation I have had enacted over the last 10 years. Though, as your Congressman, I make nominations, the final selection among nominees is made by academy admissions officials. They look for strong grades, high SAT or ACT scores, physical ability, and leadership potential. Service academy graduates receive an officer’s commission and must serve for five years. More information and an application form are available here, and at your local congressional office. Applications are due on Friday, December 7.
