Events to offer information on US service academy admissions

September 13, 2018

CHARLESTON — U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W. Va., will host four “Academy Days” this fall for West Virginia students interested in learning more about admission to U.S. service academies and available Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) scholarships.

Members of Capito’s staff will be available at each event to provide information on nominations to the following academies: Air Force, Coast Guard, Military/Army, Naval and Merchant Marine.

“These events are great opportunities for students to learn more about the service academy experience and how the admissions process works,” Capito said. “I hope West Virginia students and their families will attend these informational sessions happening throughout the state this fall.”

During the events, various service academy admissions representatives will be available to answer questions and representatives from local ROTC scholarship programs will discuss program details with prospective students and their families. A representative from the Department of Defense’s Medical Examination Review Board (DoD-MERB) will be in attendance at the Sept. 15 program.
