To locate the form on the website students need to highlight the “Serving You Tab” and then click on the “Military Academy Nominations”. Please advise the students to read the FAQ’s as they provide valuable information regarding the nomination process. Once our office has received the application the student will be contacted by our staff. We will review their application with them, request any additional information, explain all deadlines and answer any questions they may have.
Students applying for a nomination from Congressman Black should also apply for a nomination from Senator Alexander and Senator Corker; this will enhance their chances of receiving a nomination. Please remind students that they also need to complete the application for each service academy they are interested in attending.
