Applications are being accepted through Congressman Mike Conaway's office for appointment to military service academies. The deadline to apply is Oct. 18, 2017.

Applicants must be residents of the 11th District and at least 17-years-old but not older than 23 on July 1, 2018. Selection is based on SAT and ACT test scores, class rank, grade point average, extracurricular activities, and leadership potential.

"One of my greatest honors as a U.S. Representative is nominating young men and women to our military service academies," Conaway said last week. "Young men and women who are interested in attending a military service academy will need to submit their application for a nomination ahead of the Oct. 18, 2017 deadline."

Students who reside in the 11th Congressional District are encouraged to submit their applications in the spring of their junior year of high school to Congressman Conaway at his San Angelo Regional Office, 33 East Twohig, Suite 307, San Angelo, Texas 76903. The deadline for completed applications to be received for the Class of 2022 (entering the Academy – Summer of 2018 ) will be October 18, 2017. (Not just a postmark – but RECEIVED.) Interviews with the applicants will be held Saturday, December 2, 2017.

The Academy Day program will feature information about the nomination process. Academy Liaison Officers, ROTC Representatives and others will be on hand to meet with prospective students and their families. Congressional staff members will also be at the Academy Day event to assist prospective applicants.
