BROWN, PORTMAN INVITE OHIOANS TO APPLY FOR NOMINATION TO U.S. SERVICE ACADEMIES
Eligible Students May Apply for the U.S. Air Force Academy, Naval Academy, Merchant Marine Academy, and Military Academy at West Point
Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Rob Portman (R-OH) are encouraging Ohioans interested in 2020 admission to U.S. Military Service Academies to apply to each senator’s office for a congressional nomination.
“Ohio’s students have the integrity, courage, and knowledge needed to enroll in our nation’s prestigious military academies and I am honored to nominate students for this high honor,” said Brown. “These academies develop the next generation of leaders who will serve our country as military officers and national leaders.”
“As a United States Senator, it is an honor and privilege every year to nominate a number of Ohio’s top young achievers for entry into one of our nation’s service academies,” said Portman. “Our nation has never had to look further than the Buckeye State to find those individuals who exhibit the sterling qualities of leadership, daring, and the sense of adventure needed to turn their biggest dreams into reality, and to rise to any occasion.”
Each year, Brown and Portman nominate up to 10 students for each service academy: the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.
Interested students who meet the eligibility requirements should send their completed application packet to Brown’s Cleveland office and Portman’s Columbus office no later than September 20, 2019. The application process is time-intensive. Applicants should plan well in advance.
For more information or to request an application, please contact to Brown’s Academy Coordinator at the Cleveland office at 1-888-896-6446 or visit Brown’s website here.
Brown and Portman will co-host United States Service Academy Seminars for all students who are interested in learning about the application processes.
