Get #Futuready

As an NHS member, you can get ready for whatever comes your way after high school. Think of it as making yourself #futuready. To help prepare you for your college journey and your career, you’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 you to build teamwork capabilities, hone project management aptitude, and make friends—all valuable life skills
  • Help with financing 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 your own chapter’s work as well as three LEAD Conferences and NHS State Summits held in select locations annually

How Can You Become a Member?

For starters, you’ll need strong grades. Once you have verified that your school has an active chapter, you must be in grades 10–12 and meet the school’s eligibility requirements to be invited to join. Check with your school’s main office to identify your chapter adviser. The adviser can then explain the process.
