A Lifetime Of Benefits

Your vision of going to university, gaining real-world experience through internships, and starting strong in your career shouldn’t be just a dream. The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS) pairs its Lifetime Members with secondary school and university scholarships, events, connections, internships, and career opportunities that last long after secondary school.

Accordion Callout

NSHSS is much more than an accolade on your university application. As an NSHSS Lifetime Member, you gain access to scholarships to help you pay for university, plus events, university recruitment fairs, resource discounts and more.

Scholarship opportunities continue once you become an undergraduate. These scholarships will help you broaden your horizons through international study abroad programs and summer volunteer programs. We’ll also help you gain valuable real-world experience through top-notch internships.

78% of NSHSS members surveyed plan to attend graduate school. Unlike most honor societies, NSHSS continues to offer scholarships even at the graduate level. As an NSHSS Lifetime Member, you’ll connect with high-caliber business partners, giving you an edge against your competition. NSHSS is committed to helping you bring to life the career of your dreams.


NSHSS Members are eligible for unique scholarships to help you pay for university. This year, we will award over USD$2 million (HK$15,500,000) to help students pay for university, study abroad, summer programs, and even graduate school.

From Learning to Leading

Leaders aren’t born. They’re made. NSHSS Members take their academic achievements to the next level with events from NSHSS. From university recruitment fairs to personal development workshops to internship and career connections, NSHSS is committed to preparing you for a bright future.
