Portman, Brown encourage Ohio students to apply for nomination to U.S. Service Academies


U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) encourage Ohioans interested in 2019 admission to U.S. Military Service Academies to apply to each senator’s office for a congressional nomination.
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 packets to Portman’s Columbus office and Brown’s Cleveland office no later than Sept. 21, 2018. The application process is time-intensive, so applicants should plan well in advance.
For more information or to request an application, please visit Portman’s website or Brown’s website. Inquiries also can be directed to Portman’s academy coordinator at the Columbus office at 1-800-205-OHIO and Brown’s academy coordinator at the Cleveland office at (888) 896-6446.
