WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman David Rouzer (R-NC) recently announced the deadline of Monday, Oct. 31, for eligible applicants in North Carolina’s 7th Congressional District wishing to apply for a nomination to a United States Service Academy for the 2016 academic year.
“It’s an honor to nominate some of the best and brightest students of Southeastern North Carolina to attend a United States Service Academy where they will receive a first-rate undergraduate education and have the opportunity to give back to our nation by serving on active duty as a military officer,” Rouzer said. “I encourage all students in the 7th Congressional District who are interested in this opportunity to submit an application to my office by October 31st to be considered for a nomination.”
Congressman Rouzer may nominate up to 10 individuals for each vacant academy slot allotted to the 7th Congressional District.
