One of my most gratifying duties is to nominate young people from the 22nd congressional district of Texas to Military service academies. As a Member of Congress, I can make what are referred to as “congressional nominations.”
To be considered for an appointment to a service academy, an applicant must meet the eligibility requirements established by law and be nominated from an authorized person including a Member of the United States Senate or the House of Representatives. NOTE: I may only nominate applicants who are legal residents of the 22nd District of Texas.
I am now taking applications for Service Academy Nominations. Completed applications must be turned in to one of my two district offices (Pearland or Sugar Land) by 5 PM on Tuesday, October 15th. Incomplete applications will not be processed. Please print all four documents to insure that the application is complete.
The application and all relevant information may be downloaded HERE.
If you are unable to download the .pdf document, please contact my office at (281) 485-4855 and a member of my staff will mail you a copy.
Please also note that you must also open an application with the service academy you are interested in attending:
