Description

MORRIS COUNTY — Representative Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) announced the launch of the application process for students from New Jersey’s 11th Congressional District seeking to be nominated for a U.S. military service academy this coming year.

“I am so proud of the men and women from my district considering careers in military service. As a U.S. Naval Academy graduate, I know our nation’s service academies provide world-class academics and leadership training that is second to none. There is no better place than one of the U.S. military academies for New Jersey students interested in a career as a military officer,” said Rep. Sherrill.

The application process for a Service Academy nomination is currently open and the deadline to submit your application is October 24, 2024. 

The nomination application is open to high school seniors applying to the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, as well as college students looking to transfer into one of the Academies. Students seeking an appointment to one of these institutions must receive a nomination to be appointed to attend. The U.S. Coast Guard Academy does not require a Congressional nomination.

The Congresswoman can only offer a limited number of nominations yearly, and the nomination process is highly competitive. Furthermore, only a fraction of nominated students ultimately receive an appointment to attend an Academy.  

Due to the high number of qualified applicants, the Congresswoman has a competitive application process that considers the academic, athletic, extracurricular activities, and community involvement of candidates who apply. In addition, every candidate is interviewed by Congresswoman Sherrill’s Academy Nomination Board, which consists of Academy alumni, military veterans, and civic leaders from the community.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Rep. Sherrill’s office at (973) 526-5668 or email the NJ-11 Academy Nomination Coordinator at [email protected].
