Nomination Instructions

Thank you for your interest in a nomination to one of our nation’s service academies. 

As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, I have the honor of nominating promising young men and women from Florida for selection to the four service academies which require nomination: Military Academy at West Point, NY, the Naval Academy at Annapolis, MD, the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, CO, and the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, NY.  High school seniors, as well as high school graduates under the age of 23, are invited to apply for a nomination to a service academy.

Because of the limited number of nominations available to each office, applicants should strongly consider contacting Senator Bill Nelson’s office and Senator Marco Rubio’s office regarding their nomination process as well. 

It is very important that the applicant for nomination, not their parent or guardian, complete the application and contact my office if there are any questions regarding the process.  Thank you for your interest in our country’s service academies.
