Military Academy Nominations


The honor of attending a service academy comes with the obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation. 

Members of Congress may nominate candidates for appointment to four of the five U.S. service academies: U.S. Military Academy (USMA), West Point, NY; the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Annapolis, MD; the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), Colorado Springs, CO; and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA), Kings Point, NY. The fifth service academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA), New London, CT, does not require a congressional nomination for appointment.

Congresswoman Bonamici may nominate up to ten individuals for each vacant academy slot allotted to our district. Your complete application packet, including all required attachments, should be sent via mail or email to Congresswoman Bonamici’ s district office. It must be received by the office no later than November 15, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. PT for consideration. Applicants will receive an official letter regarding their nomination status no later than January 31, 2022. 

Please contact the Congresswoman’s Beaverton office at 503-469-6010 with any questions about this process.


Applications are due by November 15th, 2021.  Please find the 2021 Military Academy application here.


Best wishes as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country!
