Members of Congress may nominate candidates for appointment to four of the five U.S. service academies: U.S. Military Academy (USMA), West Point, N.Y.; the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Annapolis, Md.; the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), Colorado Springs, Colo.; and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA), Kings Point, N.Y. Each member of Congress is allotted a limited number of nominations that they submit to each academy.
The deadline to apply for a nomination for each of the Congressional offices is October 8, 2021. As part of this process, I am looking for applicants who demonstrate exceptional leadership ability and represent the full diversity of our great state. I am committed to running a transparent and inclusive academy nominations process that ensures every student has an equal chance to serve, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.
For more information about the process, I encourage you to visit the Service Academies Nominations resource guide on my website. And please contact my office if you have any additional questions that we can help answer or if we can help connect you to additional information.
