Sen. Mazie K. Hirono is accepting applications from Hawai‘i students who seek a military service academy nomination from her office.

Each year, Sen. Hirono nominates Hawai‘i students to the Air Force Academy, U.S. Military Academy, Naval Academy and the Merchant Marine Academy.

Qualified students seeking a Congressional nomination from Sen. Hirono must apply by the Nov. 1, 2017, deadline.

“Each year, I have the privilege of nominating talented Hawai‘i students to serve as the next generation of our country’s military leaders,” said Sen. Hirono, a member of the U.S. Air Force Academy Board of Visitors. “Those selected for nomination will go forward to proudly represent our state as they continue through the rigorous and highly competitive application process.”

To be considered for a nomination, candidates should have a strong academic background, participation in school and community activities, a high standard of physical fitness and a desire to serve as a commissioned officer in the U.S. uniformed services or the U.S. Merchant Marine.


Nomination does not guarantee admission.
