About the Foundation
“Fostering Education Through Scholarships”
The mission of The National Society of High School Scholars Foundation is to support education in the form of scholarships targeted to outstanding, diverse students who express interest in pursuing careers that:
- fuel the global economy
- stimulate innovation and creativity, or
- yield a strong ethical foundation for decision-making.
THE NSHSS FOUNDATION fosters the growth of graduates enrolled in the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math), business, economics, public policy, and environmental science and sustainability fields. Through special programs, including the NSHSS Honor Society, the NSHSS Foundation connects young scholars with additional opportunities to advance their education, personal growth and career interests.
A particular goal is to help increase the representation of African-Americans, Asians, Hispanics, Native Americans, and females in careers where these targeted groups are under-represented. Additionally, we seek to support education in the form of other types of scholarships that can help our future leaders achieve their dreams.
