Congressman John Shimkus is now accepting applications from young men and women interested in attending a Military Academy. High school students, college students, and anyone interested should apply now for the fall 2017 semester. Congressman Shimkus attended West Point Academy.
“As the school year begins, many students are thinking about what’s next. As a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, I am eager to provide information and assistance with nominations to the military academies,” said Shimkus.
Candidates must be US citizens, at least 17 year old, but no more that 23 years old by July 1, not married, under no legal obligations to support a child, a legal resident of the 15th District of Illinois.
“I encourage young men and women with any level of interest to contact us now,” Shimkus added. “There are several steps in this process, and applications must be filed with both my office and online with the individual academies.”
