As your Congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives for Arizona’s 6th District, each year I have the privilege of nominating a limited number of students for scholarships to attend a military service academy. The U.S. Service Academies are among the most highly respected educational programs in the nation. To be admitted to an academy, applicants must meet stringent academic, physical and medical requirements specified by public law. As a cadet/midshipman at the academy, students will be provided a fully-funded four-year college education. The honor of attending an academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve for a minimum of five years upon graduation.
The online application for the 6th Congressional District opens May 16th. Apply here: Service Academy Application 2022.
The deadline to apply is October 7, 2022.
Once the preliminary electronic form is completed and submitted, applicants should mail all additionally required supporting documentation, such as transcripts, letters of recommendation, personal statement, test scores, and recent photo, to my District Office at 14500 N. Northsight Blvd. Ste. 221, Scottsdale, AZ 85260.
Please note: A congressional nomination is not a guarantee of admission. The final decision to appoint will be made by the service academy itself following the final review of your medical and academic qualifications by the Service Academy Admission’s Board.
For additional questions, please refer to our FAQ link below or contact Lydia Macias, Service Academy Coordinator, in my District Office at (480) 946-2411.
*The U.S. Coast Guard does not require a congressional appointment. Appointments are considered solely on the basis of an annual nationwide competition.
