Washington, DC Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today announced that he is accepting applications from high school students for nominations to the United States armed services academies from Iowa's 1st District for the class entering in fall 2014.
"Our military academies provide a world-class education and help grow our nation's next generation of leaders," Braley said. "I'm looking for highly qualified and motivated students to nominate to these service academies. I encourage Iowa's best and brightest young people to apply."
Interested students should contact Braley's district office in Waterloo to request an application packet to be considered for a service academy nomination. The application packet includes specific instructions on the accompanying forms and required documents, including an application form, an essay, high school transcript, ACT/SAT scores, and letters of recommendation.
These materials take time to compile, so interested students are strongly encouraged to start obtaining the materials needed for the packet as soon as possible.
The deadline for submitting a completed nomination packet to Braley's office is Friday, October 11th.
For further information as well as an application packet, contact the Waterloo office at (319) 287-3233.
