The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) is an honors organization that recognizes and elevates high achievers. NSCS provides career and graduate school connections, leadership and service opportunities and gives out a million dollars in scholarships annually. NSCS members are deeply committed to scholarship, leadership and service and as a result, are impacting their campus and local communities every day.
NSCS offers more money in undergraduate scholarships than any other honor society, $1,000,000 annually. In addition, your membership is more than just an academic achievement or a line on a resume. Active chapters encourage members to participate in community service and provide them with professional and personal development opportunities.
Students are invited to join in their first or second year of college. However, once you become a member, you're always a member. Your membership transfers to your four-year university. Many universities in Texas have NSCS chapters, including Baylor University, Southern Methodist University, Rice University, The University of Texas at Arlington, The University of Texas at Austin, The University of Texas at Dallas, The University of North Texas, and Texas A & M. If the four-year institution that you plan to transfer to does not have an NSCS chapter, you may create one yourself!
NSCS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1994 on the campus of The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. NSCS is a member of the
Association of College Honor Societies and is a recognized organization at over 300 campuses across the country.
