Academy Nominations

The Senator's Academy application is now available.

Considering young leaders for nomination to a United States Service Academy is one of my most important responsibilities as a United States Senator. Each year, I am encouraged by the number of bright and talented students who contact me requesting my nomination.

All students who complete my application in advance of the October 24 deadline and have an application open with the academies of their choice will be interviewed by my Service Academy Review Board in November. Applicants are notified of my nomination by late December.
