Military Academy Nominations

Each year, Members of Congress nominate young men and women to become eligible for an appointment to a U.S. Service Academy. The academies are seeking future cadets and midshipmen who possess “whole person” qualifications: good moral character, a commendable academic record, evidence of strong leadership potential, physical aptitude, medical fitness, motivation to achieve academically, and eventually, the desire to serve as an officer in the Armed Forces. Our office will make ten nominations for each House of Representative vacancy at:

  • The United States Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colorado
  • The United States Military academy, West Point, New York
  • The United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland
  • The United States Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point, New York

Nominations will be awarded based on the recommendations of the Citizens Advisory Committee and Congressman Jason Crow. The nominating process begins by completing the application packet, available here. The completed application can be sent to Aly DeWills Marcano at

All required forms and documents must be on file in Congressman Jason Crow’s office by the deadline: October 1st, 2020. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Nominations will be announced before the end of the year.

If you are an applicant for Congressman Crow’s nomination for a Service Academy and you will be unable to submit your ACT/SAT scores due to COVID-19 related delays, please contact to request a waiver for late submittal of scores.
