- September 20, 6:30pm: the Offices of U.S. Congresswoman Haley Stevens and U.S. Senator Gary Peters are having an informational Zoom presentation for anyone interested in attending a United States service academy. Attending a service academy is an incredible way to serve our country while also getting a world-class education!
Attending a service academy is completely free of charge – this includes tuition, room and board, and other expenses and stipends that equate to up to $400,000. Graduates from these academies are commissioned as officers into the United States military. Because of this, it is an extremely competitive and complex application process.
