Description: The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is the nation's premiere honor organization for high-achieving college students. Founded in 1994 at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C., NSCS boasts over 500,000 lifetime members and over 220 active chapters in colleges and universities throughout the nation. NSCS is a recognized member of the Association of College Honor Societies. Membership is offered to college students who have a minimum GPA of 3.4 and rank in the top 20th percentile of their class. Although students must meet these requirements in order to become an official member of the society, the NSCS chapter at UCI welcomes all students to participate in its activities, regardless of one's academic standing. All NSCS chapters are involved in service to their campus and local communities, as well as scholastic and social activities. NSCS aims to honor, inspire and engage its members, and offers benefits including scholarships, leadership development, travel opportunities and career resources. NSCS members are also eligible to participate in a variety of activities sponsored by the Society. Scholarships and awards, service programs, community building and information sharing are the focus of activities organized nationally. The UC Irvine chapter has mobilized over one thousand NSCS members in our time on campus and we have received the highest rank of Platinum among all other chapters nationwide. We shall continue our tradition of academic excellence, community involvement, and leadership training. As our new members, we invite you to join us along with the promise that your experience in NSCS will be truly valuable.
