As you may know, scholarships to a Service Academy are valued at $400,000 for a student. I have enclosed a flyer and an “ad” that can be used on your video screens or in newsletters for you to share with your students. For my office, the Service Academy Application Deadline for the Class of 2025 (high school class 2021 or later) is Monday, November 23, 2020. Applications should be sent to his Fort Wayne District Office. Please note that the application deadline has been extended for this year. The application is also available online at https://banks.house.gov/services/service-academy-nominations.
Our district Service Academy Nominations are highly competitive, and the Service Academy Day helps to give direction to students who hope to gain a nomination from our office.
