Senators Portman and Brown to Co-Host 17 United States Service Academy Seminars Throughout the StateEligible Students May Apply for the U.S. Air Force Academy, Naval Academy, Merchant Marine Academy, and Military Academy at West Point
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today encouraged Ohioans interested in 2020 admission to U.S. Military Service Academies to apply to each senator’s office for a congressional nomination.
“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.”
“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.”
Each year, Portman and Brown 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 Portman’s Columbus office and to Brown’s Cleveland 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 visit Portman’s website here. Inquiries can also be directed to Portman’s Academy Coordinator at the Columbus office 1-800-205-OHIO and to Brown’s Academy Coordinator at the Cleveland office 1-888-896-6446.
Portman and Brown will co-host 17 United States Service Academy Seminars throughout the state for all students who are interested in learning about the application processes.

Should you have students with any questions about the essays, feel free to share the information above, or let me know and I’d be happy to help them.
We have one other reminder. The last couple years, we have been able to send out some early estimated aid packages and we are able to do that again this year. If your students complete and submit both their application for admission (and all supporting documents) and FASFA by November 15th they will receive a decision and an estimated award package by December 15th.
