Senator Warren has the great honor of nominating a select few of Massachusetts' best and brightest students to serve our country by attending one of our service academies: the US Military Academy at West Point, the US Naval Academy, the US Air Force Academy and the US Merchant Marine Academy.
The people who attend our service academies receive a top-notch education while preparing for careers of military service and beyond. To be considered for admission to a service academy, each applicant must receive an official nomination. Senators and Members of Congress can nominate a few eligible students to each academy each year. Applying to a service academy can be a complex process. Please note that, in addition to completing this nomination application, you must also complete the full application process of your desired service academy. Contact information for each academy's admissions office is listed below. You must meet all academy admissions requirements to receive a nomination.
