Service Academy Nomination Process

Members of Congress have the responsibility to nominate young men and women to the various service academies. In an effort to better inform the residents of Ohio about these schools and the selection process;  interested students and their parents may attend an informational seminars co-hosted by Senator Sherrod Brown and Senator Rob Portman. They will jointly host ten seminars across the state throughout the month of April. Liaison officers from the Naval, Military, Air Force, and Merchant Marine academies will be present to speak and to answer questions.

In addition,  Academy Coordinators will discuss the congressional nomination process that is used to select qualified men and women. The privilege of nominating candidates to the United States service academies is one that entails a great deal of responsibility. Like the academies, the senators are interested in students who have demonstrated leadership potential and excellence in academics, athletics, and extra-curricular activities. Any freshman, sophomores, or juniors who may be interested in attending one of the seminars, may also contact Michael Dustman, Academy Co-Coordinator at (800) 205-OHIO (6446) or Suzanne Cox:
