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. For more information, please review the page of Frequently Asked Questions for those seeking a Military Academy Nomination.
To be considered for the nomination from Congresswoman Eshoo, please print the application you fill out below along with four complete copies of the entire package and mail to 698 Emerson Street, Palo Alto, California 94301 by November 6th, 2020 5:00 p.m. PST. The package should contain (1) signed application, (2) the answers to the essay questions, (3) photos, (4) list of extracurricular activities and leadership responsibilities, (5) recommendation letters, and (6) sealed official transcripts. Please note, the nomination process is separate from the application to the Academies.
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 Eshoo may nominate up to ten individuals for each vacant academy slot allotted to our district. Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.
