Congressman Peter DeFazio

Representing the 4th District of OREGON

Military Academies

All five U.S. service academies offer young men and women a free college education while preparing them for an officer's commission in the Armed Forces, Merchant Marines, or Coast Guard. All except the COAST GUARD ACADEMY require a congressional nomination for admission.*

If you are interested in my nomination to one of the following academies, you must be a resident of the Fourth Congressional District, a citizen of the United States, and between the ages of 17 and 22.

I base my nominations for all academies on the whole person. That means I look at Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Testing (ACT) scores, academic performance, physical condition, any work experience, and extracurricular activities like athletics and community service.

Please call or write my Eugene office for more information or to request an application for nomination.

*Please note, if you are the daughter or son of a Medal of Honor recipient, you do not need a congressional nomination to apply for admission to the service academies.
