Bruce Braley accepting applications now
Washington, DC – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) reminded high school students today that he is accepting applications for nominations to the United States armed services academies from Iowa’s 1st District for the class entering in fall 2012.
“I am seeking highly qualified and motivated students to nominate to our nation’s service academies,” Braley said. “Students not only get a world-class education at the academies, but they grow into our country’s next generation of leaders. I want to send Iowa’s best to the academies, and I encourage interested young Iowans to apply.”
Interested students should contact Braley’s district office in Waterloo to request an application packet to be considered for a service academy nomination. The application packet includes specific instructions on the accompanying forms and required documents, including an application form, an essay, high school transcript, ACT/SAT scores, and letters of recommendation. These materials take time to compile, so interested students are strongly encouraged to start obtaining the materials needed for the packet as soon as possible.
The deadline for submitting a completed nomination packet to Braley’s office is Friday, October 14th.
Braley nominates up to 10 candidates from Iowa’s First Congressional District for each available vacancy at the four service academies: the US Military Academy, the Naval Academy, the Air Force Academy, and the Merchant Marine Academy. Applicants are judged on the basis of character, scholarship, physical aptitude, medical fitness, and motivation.
For further information as well as an application packet, contact the Waterloo office at (319) 287-3233.
