Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Menomonee Falls) announced today that he is currently accepting applications from individuals who are interested in a nomination to attend the United States Air Force, Military, Naval or Merchant Marine Academies in the summer of 2015. 

Applications can be accepted from those who are United States citizens with residency in Wisconsin’s Fifth Congressional District; at least 17 years old, but not past their 23rd birthday as of July 1, 2015; and have reached their senior year of high school.

Upon receiving a completed application, candidates will be interviewed by a member of the Congressman’s Academy Selection Committee, comprised of community leaders from around the area.  The interview will be a full assessment of the candidate’s leadership potential, character, motivation and interests.  Based on the recommendations of his committee, the Congressman will then make his nominations to the Academies.  The deadline for completed applications is Wednesday, October 15, 2014. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. 

“As a Member of Congress, I have the privilege and honor of nominating to our service academies outstanding young men and women from the Fifth Congressional District,” said Sensenbrenner. “I encourage anyone interested in pursuing a nomination to contact my Brookfield office to request an application.”
