Each year the Society of the War of 1812 in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania awards the Society of the War of 1812 medal to worthy recipients taking part in the ROTC and NROTC programs at colleges and universities through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, including Bucknell University, Carnegie Mellon University, Clarion University, Drexel University, Gannon University, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Penn State University, Saint Joseph’s University, Shippensburg University, Slippery Rock University, Temple University, University of Pennsylvania, University of Pittsburgh, University of Scranton, Valley Forge Junior College, Villanova University, Widener University, and Wilkes University.

If your school has an ROTC/NROTC program and is not included in the list above, please contact us.

The closure of all colleges and universities in Pennsylvania during the spring 2020 semester curtailed most of the public awards ceremonies where the 1812 medals are distributed.

If your school’s ceremony has been postponed until the resumption of classes in the fall semester, please let us know and we will forward the medal to your school.
