Apply now for academy nomination

Young men and women from the Northern Marianas interested in an exceptional college education at no cost and committed to serving our country should apply now for a congressional nomination to one of the U.S. service academies. As a result of changes I included in U.S. Public Laws 111-84, 111-383, and 114-92, there are openings for the Marianas at all four academies – the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, and the U.S. Military Academy – for next year’s incoming class. Attending any of the academies is a unique opportunity to obtain a premier education and an officer’s commission in return for five years of service.

As your Congressman, I may make nominations, but the final selection among nominees is made by academy admissions officials. They look for strong grades, high SAT or ACT scores, physical ability, and leadership potential.

More information and an application form are available at, and at your local congressional office.

Applications are due on Friday, December 7.
