What is NSCS?
The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) honors high achievers and inspires them to live and lead with integrity while transforming the world in a positive way.
NSCS awards $1 million annually in undergraduate scholarships, awards, and chapter funds to help our members attain their goals and commend them for outstanding academic excellence, leadership, and service achievements.
NSCS members are viewed as leaders in their education community and organize annually at the NSCS Leadership Summit. Members also have access to career resources, leadership development, and much more.
NSCS is a nationwide community of member scholars, officers, advisors, partners, employers, sponsors, and more. NSCS Chapters plan activities such as networking events, social gatherings, and community service projects regularly.
