NSHSS works to continuously provide scholarship opportunities to our members to defray the costs associated with college and life-changing educational programs. A variety of scholarships are available for high school students to support college tuition at the accredited college or university of the member’s choosing, study abroad programs and special leadership and skills development programs through NSHSS partners.
College members also have access to scholarships to further support their collegiate studies, as well as opportunities to attend exclusive conferences such as Clinton Global Initiative University and the annual Nobel Prize week festivities in Stockholm, Sweden.
NSHSS is a long-time member and supporter of the National Scholarship Providers Association (NSPA), a nonprofit, membership association that advances the collective impact of scholarship providers and the scholarships they award. NSPA was established in 1999 by Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, Fastweb.com, Hispanic Scholarship Fund and Scholarship America to facilitate the creation of scholarship best practices, encourage professional development and to establish cooperative relationships among scholarship providers.

As scholarships open, they are posted online in your member dashboard under “Apply for Scholarships” once you are logged in. Be sure to set your contact preferences on your member profile to allow communication from NSHSS in order to have scholarship details sent to you.
For most scholarships, you will need to include a personal statement; resume of honors, awards, leadership activities, extracurricular activities, and community service; educator recommendation; transcript, and photo. If you are applying for more than one scholarship, you may submit one transcript and recommendation to use for multiple scholarships. The educator recommendation form is online and the link is provided in the scholarship applications. Review all guidelines for particular scholarships before submitting the application.
