Senator Peters has the honor of nominating exceptional Michigan students to the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and U.S. Military Academy. To compete for a spot at one of the service academies, students must be nominated by a member of the Congressional Delegation. Students should apply for a nomination during the spring of their junior year of high school.
