Military Academy Nominations

Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Service Academies. Each year, I have the privilege of nominating a limited number of people to four of the five service academies; U.S. Military Academy (USMA), the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA). The fifth service academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA) does not require a congressional nomination for appointment. The honor of attending a service academy comes with the obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation.

For more information, please review the page of Frequently Asked Questions for those seeking a Military Academy Nomination.

Download and print the Military Academy Nomination Application.

Please print and mail the completed application and supplemental materials to:

Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer
Attn: Academy Nominations Committee
1050 Main Street
Dubuque, IA 52001

All materials are due by 5:00 p.m. on October 31 of the current year. If you have any questions, please call our Dubuque office at (563)-557-7789.

Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.
