Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

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 and grants that can help our future leaders achieve their dreams.

Since 2002, the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS) has been supporting young academics on their journey to college and beyond as they prepare to become the leaders of tomorrow. Co-founded by the grand-nephew of Alfred Nobel, NSHSS is inspired by the mission of the Nobel Prize to support academic achievement and world betterment. NSHSS pursues this mission by connecting members with many opportunities to pursue scholarships, attend college fairs, provide internship opportunities, training, career and leadership opportunities, and offers multiple webinars and in-person events for our members to interact with well-known leaders and each other.

Since our founding in 2002, our dedicated team of professionals has fostered a diverse and inclusive organization of exceptional young leaders of more than 2 million members spanning high school to college to career. We strive to honor academic achievement and provide unique resources and scholarships that enrich educational journeys, fuel career interests, and drive community impact.
