Annual Scholarship Award

The guidelines and requirements for the USC Bob Chandler Scholarship Award truly distinguish its recipients. Underclassmen are evaluated during the season, based on their athletic ability, academic scholarship, and character, both on and off the playing field, including leadership, courage, tenacity, discipline, loyalty and high standards of morals and values. Those underclassmen judged worthy candidates are chosen by the USC’s Athletic Department. The award is presented annually at the Football Awards Banquet. The Foundation, through its “Friends of Bob” campaign, has permanently endowed the scholarship in Bob’s memory. Highlights of Bob’s USC athletic career are on permanent display in USC’s John McKay Athletic Center lobby to honor Bob, who exemplified the highest standards of moral character, commitment to family values and dedication to athletic excellence.
