NSCS members are deeply committed to scholarship, leadership, service and integrity. NSCS provides chapter and member engagement, career and graduate school connections, leadership and service opportunities and access to a million dollars in scholarships annually.

ELIGIBILITY: NSCS invites first and second year students who are in the top 20% of their class with at least a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.4. NSCS is an interdisciplinary honor society.

MAJOR ACTIVITIES: Chapters coordinate and participate in many NSCS Signature events including: The New Member Induction Ceremony each year for new members and their families; The NSCS Planning to Achieve Collegiate Excellence (PACE) Program, a program that empowers chapters to create local mentoring and tutoring programs to encourage local youth to graduate from high school and aspire to attend college. In addition, our chapters provide many campus-specific academic, leadership, social and community service activities for members throughout the year.
