Being a member of the Honor Society opened the doors for great opportunities and introduced me to some of the most ambitious, driven, intelligent and creative individuals you will ever meet. It is a great community with abundant resources that supports its members to continue their learning path towards reaching their goals. I was awarded the Spotlight Scholarship by the Honor Society Foundation. I am truly grateful for the chance to represent myself and those that support me on my journey.

Honor Society gave me a £2500 member spotlight scholarship to further my professional development and helped me develop the technical skills necessary to become a successful scientist. I am grateful to Honor Society for the opportunity and support, and because of the society's confidence in me I was able to receive other funding and continue to graduate school. Honor Society provided great opportunities and scholarships when I was a member, including funding to start a new chapter at a university. I was able to meet other members and scholarship winners (like my chapter leader) who inspired me. I am glad I was a member and would encourage other undergraduates to join to further their success academically and professionally with Honor Society's support.

This is a great organization that not only supports students through their journey through higher education, but also motivates them to do more and live up to higher values. Recommend this organization to anyone who is looking to help themselves or their children build a framework for success in today's world.

I was awarded the Study Abroad scholarship in 2015. Honor Society Foundation helped fund my education experience in Rome, Italy for the Spring semester. I was fully immersed in the Roman culture. I lived in a flat in the Prati neighborhood, shopped semi-daily at local grocers, markets, butchers, and stands, joined a local gym, learned "street" Italian, and studied international finance/economics.

I was fortunate to be studying finance and economics in Europe during the Greek Debt Crisis. I met with the Greek Ambassador to Italy, Italian economists, and academic leaders to discuss the Debt Crisis.

My study abroad experience shaped my education as a whole and brought in-class lessons to life. I am grateful that the Honor Society Foundation contributed to such an impactful and exciting time in my life.

Thanks!

This organization has helped me afford my grad school expenses and has been very beneficial to my experience! I have been able to build the skill sets needed to lead, organize and grow an entity. I am interested in getting to network with like-minded peers and friends. I am trying to build relationship that can help you grow and succeed for a lifetime. I want to make a demonstrable impact. I am excited to showcase my technology, video, and audio abilities for future opportunities and current employers. There are many scholarships and leadership opportunities available. I want to go on the subsidized member trip program to connect with other members and chapter founders in places like Washington DC, Los Angeles, or Chicago one day.

As an Honor Society Foundation volunteer, I have to say this is one of the most exciting organizations that I've had an opportunity to be involved with. Not only is the foundation passionate about helping students succeed but it's great to see scholarship winners so happy with the extra help we can give them. Everyone has a dream of success and opportunity and I truly feel that we get the chance to help students achieve those dreams. I've had the chance to work first hand with the museum and to see cataloged items dating back to the 1700's is surreal. Unpacking new items every day was an absolute thrill and it's an experience I'll never receive anywhere else. I look forward to see what the Honor Society Foundation will do in the future and for the future.

As Honor Society Chapter Founder of Alpha Epsilon Chapter at UTSA, I was extremely elevated as a student, leader and individual in the community. Honor Society provided great resources and support during my term as founding president. I was really impressed after reading about the online preeminent organization, and then actually being invited on special terms to attend the Washington DC membership trip. The ceremony was full of professionals from around the country, speaking on leadership and inspiration. It also wouldn’t be an Honor Society trip without the fun activities, like the museum, nice restaurants and theme park day. Serving a full term as founder allowed me to practice what I have learned in school. Being a Communications major, I was always researching and giving speeches or presentations. I learned more about myself in that year and a half than at any of my previous jobs. Honor Society connected me with members that I am still friends with today. Founding a chapter gives you real on hands experience as a coordinator. I held interviews, planned events, attended leadership seminars for myself and became a problem solver. It was very rewarding to express an idea to a group of people with different backgrounds and interests, then see the events we put together run successfully. I’ve made improvements as a leader regarding teamwork. I took feedback and criticism from my members and applied it to my system. Thinking back to the 3rd meeting I held, my room was packed and from there on out, it was always a full house. People made me happy and it felt good being able to give these useful tools and moments back to the members. I hope I made their membership worthwhile, as we ended the year with professional photos and a chapter banquet for graduating seniors.

I first heard about Honor Society 3 years ago via e-mail and honestly didn't know what to expect. But once I attended a member night and saw that the people were legit I really started to invest time and effort into the society. The main thing that impacted me are the core values of the society, because they are so meaningful especially in today's ever-changing world. Compared to the modest expectations I had, Honor Society Foundation has far exceeded them.

Our mission is incredibly important. Our scholarships have real and substantial impact on the youth of our great country. Recipients have a focus on our core values that help them lead more productive, fulfilling, and enriched lives. In addition, the work that Honor Society Foundation continues to do to maintain the rich history of honor societies is unparalleled. Pieces in the museum date back to the 1700's and are finally being shared with the world.

As a volunteer, I'm honored to work with an organization that makes it possible for students and professionals to hold themselves to a higher standard. The Honor Society Foundation has changed countless lives by providing scholarships to individuals who reflect our core values by allowing them the financial means to pursue their goals, an opportunity that may have not been available to them otherwise. The Honor Society Foundation also assists in the creation and management of chapters, another vehicle to success and community-building for members. Most importantly, the Honor Society Foundation is committed to helping the dreams of students and professionals become a reality, and I'm excited to see how many more lives we will change.

As a board member, I am proud of the contribution Honor Society Foundation is making to help individuals lead better lives and pursue their education. Honor Society Foundation has been making scholarships to student leaders in 8 categories, has created programming about living up to our society's core values, and has preserved the largest and most diverse collection of honor society history. Keep up the great work.
