U.S. Representative Ed Royce

39th District of California

Each year Rep. Royce has the privilege of nominating young men and women of the highest caliber to our nation's military academies. America’s service academies are some of the most prestigious educational institutions in the world that offer students an excellent education in addition to a commission as a military officer. The appointment process is rigorous, highly selective and based on a candidate's academic achievement, athletic ability, extracurricular activities and community service.
