Academy Nominations

Thank you for your interest in a nomination to one of our nation’s service academies. 

As a member of the U.S. Senate, I have the honor of nominating promising young men and women from Florida for selection to the four service academies which require nomination: Naval Academy at Annapolis, MD, the Military Academy at West Point, NY, the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, CO, and the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, NY.  High school juniors and seniors, as well as high school graduates under the age of 23, are invited to apply for a nomination to a service academy.

Because of the limited number of nominations available to each Senator, applicants should strongly consider contacting Senator Rick Scott’s office and your member of the U.S. House of Representative’s office regarding their nomination process as well.  You can find the name of your congressman at the U.S. House of Representatives’ website at:

It is very important that the applicant for nomination, not their parent or guardian, complete the application and contact my office if there are any questions regarding the process.  Thank you for your interest in our country’s service academies.


The application period for the 2020 Academy nomination period has closed.

***Reminder that updated SAT/ACT scores can be submitted to our office up to and on the interview dates.***
