High school seniors invited to apply

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced that his office is accepting applications for students from the Hudson Valley to seek a United States Service Academy nomination. Rep. Maloney has the ability to nominate students to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, U.S. Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point. Students applying to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London do not need a Congressional nomination. In June, 13 students from the Hudson Valley accepted offers of appointment to one of the nation’s service academies.

Interested students must submit completed applications to Maloney’s district office at 123 Grand St., Newburgh, NY 12550, no later than Oct. 11, 2014. All applicants who have submitted their completed application materials will be contacted to schedule their interview with Rep. Maloney’s Service Academy Selection Board.

The application process is open to all interested high school seniors in New York’s 18th Congressional District. Students are encouraged to research specific academies on their respective websites for information on the nomination and selection process. Detailed information and a downloadable application are available at seanmaloney.house.gov. Questions may be directed to Oscar Dunham, Senior Veterans Advocat, at 845-561-1259.
