At NSCS we hope you all are safe and making it through these challenging times.
We know how difficult it has been as you transition to a whole new way of being a college student. But the good news is we’re in it together. Below you will find a compilation of NSCS resources and links that you might find helpful during this time – some are meant to provide you with pertinent information on chapter operations and others are meant to provide a pleasant form of distraction. We will continue to update this page as new information becomes available, and as always, please follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for regular updates.

Fall New Member Induction Ceremonies
Our chapter officers are busy scheduling and planning induction ceremonies for all of our new members. Most of these will take place in September or October. Invitations will be sent later in the summer. Check with your local leadership or with your Chapter Operations Manager to find out about your event.
Looking for a leadership role with your chpater? Positions are filling up fast, but there are leadership opportunities at most chapters. Connect with your local chapter leaders to learn more.
NSCS This Fall
Whether your school has classes on campus or online, we’re working with chapter leaders to put together lots of ways to connect with one another this fall. From induction ceremonies, to service initiatives, to social media contests and virtual tutoring and mentoring opportunities, we anticipate a very active fall, as usual. Keep an eye out for emails and follow your chapter on social media.
Emergency Scholar Assistance Program
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NSCS launched its Emergency Scholar Assistance Program for displaced members who had their academic schedule unexpectedly disrupted. NSCS has provided assistance to 215 members who experienced financial, academic and/or housing hardships. This effort featured in US News & World Report, CNBC, and University Business.
Platinum and Merit Awards
Awards for the 2019-20 year will be announced this summer. Thanks to everyone for participating! We love seeing what you do and we will be sharing application packets soon.
