The Superintendent’s Annual Fund strengthens the Margin of Excellence at West Point, the programs that go beyond the federally funded core elements of a cadet’s education and training.

The Superintendent’s Annual Fund enables the Corps of Cadets to

  • Explore their personal interests in one of the 130+ cadet clubs
  • Play on an NCAA or Corps Squad team
  • Participate in a Staff Ride to a historic battlefield
  • Study overseas and immerse themselves in another culture
  • Work on a capstone project or present research on Projects Day
  • Go on a trip section to another Army or national agency
  • Intern with an NGO or at a corporation
  • Beat Navy!

Such opportunities are truly what define the Margin of Excellence and are what make West Point the world’s renowned leadership development institution.
