NEWBURGH – Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced on Wednesday that his office is accepting applications from Hudson Valley students seeking a nomination to one of the U.S. Service Academies.

Rep. Maloney can 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.

“It’s an honor to nominate young people to our nation’s service academies and it’s a part of the job I look forward to most,” said Rep. Maloney, a member of the West Point Board of Visitors. “We’ve got some incredibly talented kids right here in the Hudson Valley, and it’s always inspiring to meet so many young people who are committed to serving their country.”

Interested students must submit their completed applications to Rep. Maloney’s district office at 123 Grand Street in Newburgh, NY 12550, no later than Oct. 31, 2017.

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 the specific academies on their respective websites for further information on the nomination and selection process.

Detailed information and a downloadable application are available here.

Any questions may be directed to Cullen Lyons, Senior Veterans Advocate, at 845-561-1259.
