Press Release – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., is accepting applications for nominations to the U.S. military service academies for the 2019-20 school year. Every year, Enzi gives Wyoming youth considering military careers the opportunity to apply for a nomination to the Air Force Academy, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Military Academy at West Point and the Naval Academy.
“Military service academies provide exceptional opportunities to young people, including a quality education,” Enzi said. “These academies open doors and provide a unique set of experiences that graduates will carry with them throughout their careers. I highly encourage anyone who is interested to apply.”
All applicants for service academies require a nomination and an appointment. Nominations are based on an evaluation of leadership, extracurricular activities, academic grades, SAT/ACT test scores and letters of recommendation. Based on the applicant’s interview with Enzi’s selection committee, applicants are recommended to Enzi for final approval. Following Enzi’s nomination, final appointments will be made by each academy.
The application, procedures and specific criteria are available at www.enzi.senate.gov under the “Academy Nominations” tab. For additional application information, please contact Martha Wilson at (307) 772-2477 or Martha_Wilson@enzi.senate.gov.
