Encourage your student to strive to become an NHS member—to make an impact, not just for himself or herself, but for the community and the world.
Getting Your Student Ready for Life
NHS members can prepare for whatever comes their way after high school. In fact, we like to say we help student members get #futuready. It’s a phrase we coined to show our commitment for helping members bring their future together with their preparation for life. To make them college and career ready, they’ll have exclusive access to robust tools and resources:
- College admission and financial aid planning options, including webinars, virtual events, and an NHS-customized scholarship search tool
- Service projects, both by the chapter and individual, allow members to build teamwork capabilities, hone project management aptitude, and make friends—all valuable life skills
- Help with financing your child’s college education through the prestigious NHS Scholarship program, which—since its establishment in 1946—has awarded more than 16,000 scholarships totaling more than $13 million to seniors who best reflect the values of NHS
- Leadership development, motivation, and inspiration gained through their own chapter’s work, as well as three LEAD Conferences and NHS State Summits held in select locations annually
How Can Your Student Become a Member?
For starters, your student will need a good academic record. Once your son or daughter has verified that his/her school has an active chapter, the student must be in grades 10–12 and meet the school’s eligibility requirements to be invited to join. Check with the school office to identify the school’s chapter adviser. The adviser can then explain the process.
