Military Service Academies

Because of extremely keen competition for nomination for an academy, students are urged to apply to every nominating authority which eligibility allows (i.e. student’s two senators, congressman, President, Vice-President, children of deceased or disabled veterans, etc.). Students selected for an academy receive four years college expenses including tuition, room, board, fees, and a monthly salary, part of which must be used for some expenses.  After graduation from an academy, a student is obligated to serve on active military duty for five years. To begin the application process, send for Pre-Candidate Questionnaire from the appropriate academy.
