Each year, Rep. Price nominates individuals from the Sixth District of Georgia to attend one of our nation's service academies.
There are five (5) service academies that offer appointments to highly qualified individuals who meet eligibility requirements and are the most competitive in academic performance, physical fitness, medical standards, extracurricular involvement, leadership traits, motivation and aptitude for military service. All service academies, other than the United States Coast Guard Academy, require a nomination from a qualified nominating source in addition to meeting the individual eligibility and entrance requirements for each respective academy.
For more information on the academies:
United States Military Academy
United States Naval Academy
United States Air Force Academy
United States Merchant Marine Academy
Appointments to the Coast Guard Academy are made on the basis of nationwide competition and do not require a nomination. For more information please contact them directly at:
