Each year, I have the privilege of nominating qualified Pennsylvania students to the United States Service Academies. This link contains detailed information about the nomination and application process. If, for some reason, the following information doesn't answer all of your questions please contact our Harrisburg office at (717) 231-7540. To begin the nomination process, you should first apply directly to the service academy you wish to attend (i.e. the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy or the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy). You should then apply for all of the nominations for which you may be eligible including, but not limited to, your elected representatives in Congress and the Vice President of the United States.
