By the Office of U.S. Congressman Tracey Mann
WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, U.S. Representative Tracey Mann (KS-01) announced the opening of military service academy nominations through his Congressional office. Rep. Mann invites students from the Big First District who wish to pursue military service to apply for a Congressional nomination to America’s military service academies.
“As a Member of Congress, it is an honor to nominate students from the Big First District to attend our country’s military service academies,” said Rep Mann. “The decision to apply to a service academy is a personal and courageous one, and I am humbled to be a part of the process.”
Members of Congress may nominate candidates for appointment to the five U.S. service academies:
- U.S. Military Academy (USMA), West Point, NY
- U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Annapolis, MD
- U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), Colorado Springs, CO
- U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA), Kings Point, NY
- U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA), New London, CT
Receiving a nomination from a Congressional office is the first step in the process of attending a service academy. A nomination does not guarantee admission. If an individual receives a nomination from a congressional office, they must next receive an appointment from the service academy.
If you, or a student you know, would like more information about attending one of the U.S. service academies, or have questions about the application process, please visit Mann.House.Gov/services/military-academy-nominations for more details on the nomination process, or contact Rep. Mann’s Manhattan office at (785) 370-7277.
The deadline to submit all application materials is September 30, 2023 by 5:00PM CT.
