For more than two decades, the USC Naval ROTC Alumni Association is a non-profit service organization, whose purpose is to support, mentor and strengthen ties between Midshipmen of the USC Gamecock Battalion, U.S. Naval forces, NROTC alumni and the University of South Carolina. This Association prides itself in supporting the young men and women comprising our USC NROTC Gamecock Battalion. To that end, we conduct fund raising activities to endow awards and scholarships to further the educational aims of the NROTC program. These scholarships allow for our Midshipmen to attend at near in state tuition for out of state students. Finally, we advocate for and promote social and recreation programs where our Gamecock Battalion competes against other NROTC Units from throughout the nation.
