In offering appointments to the service academies, the admissions offices at these schools seek “leaders of character to serve the common defense.” The “whole person” concept – academic success, leadership, involvement in activities, and character – is sought by the US service academies. Scholarships amount to nearly $500,000 in academic and career training, and are awarded to less than 15% of all applicants.
