I'm so glad I joined NSCS! In a tough year, it has been a source of education, connection and hope. They truly care about students and offer a wide variety of resources: classes, events, scholarships, mentors, leadership summits, partnerships with other organizations (e.g., resume reviews, internships, jobs, etc). They will support you and push you to excel.

NSCS has provided a great sense of community for me. Because I am an online student I don't always get contact with fellow students, however, NSCS's discussion boards have helped with that. NSCS has also provided me with great opportunities from discounts to greater recognition from employers. I have only had one issue with NSCS and that was during my attempt to join the Strayer University chapter NSCS board of executives. Unfortunately, their president for this chapter is impossible to contact and I have not been able to connect with anyone who can assist with this.

This organization is legit! I totally recommend joining as long as you are willing to put in some work. It is a resource for students that may have financial obstacles in the way of their education.

This charity is wonderful! The National Society of Collegiate Scholars does its best to help students like me reach our potential by instilling confidence and integrity in what we do. What NSCS does for students such as helping with scholarships, teaching leadership, and serving others through partnering with Active Minds. By partnering with Active Minds, this organization promotes education and encouragement of others to help or seek mental health assistance.

I am Emily Hicks NSCS means so much to me. I have disability and doctors told my mom and dad that I would never walk or talk. I would also never be able to go to college or do anything like everyone else. But my family never gave up on me. So, I never give up too. I never thought I would be able to go to college and now I am in college and in NSCS and I have only have As and Bs. I cannot even describe how much it means to me to be in NSCS. NSCS gives me support to feel confident when I do not think I can make it in college no more because sometimes the work is too hard for me to understand. Please never give up on dreams. If you are thinking about joining I would because it is amazing opportunity for you.

I have really enjoyed being a part of NSCS. There are so many scholarship opportunities and they include study abroad semesters as well! I also like that there are blogs posted by other students across the country that cover a multitude of subjects, from stress management to job interviewing. They also host monthly meetings for the members at your school. This organization is extremely beneficial to your collegiate career and if given the opportunity, is a great idea to be inducted as a member.

I got into NSCS based on my outstanding GPA at Grand Canyon University. I am loving the opportinity to apply for scholarships. I have not utilized the scholorships because I was unaware of how to apply for them. I would love information on this, as well as scholorship availability notifications. Im hoping to recieve a scholorship to help pay for school and get my moneys worth. Thank you.

When I received my email about being selected for my NSCS opportunity, I was in complete shock. I knew I was working pretty hard and getting great grades but I never thought I’d be chosen to be apart of the NSCS family. My whole life I have worked so hard and always put education as my #1 priority. There was even a time where my education was put at jeopardy but I prevailed and made honor roll. I vowed that year to always work hard and to remember that education is about knowledge and to me “To learn knowledge is to invest in a future”. There is so much information out there that can be learned in so many forms. You can never stop learning and that’s the great thing about education.

Having the opportunity to be a part of the NSCS family, I am given so many amazing opportunities and benefits even out side of my college career. Benefits like great rates in car rentals while traveling or grate rates on car insurance. Think switching to Geico can save you 15% without a NSCS membership? Wait till you see how much you can save with one! I was also offered the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Barcelona! Crazy Right? They also have awesome scholarships you can apply to throughout the year and tools to help with what comes after college (the real work) like finding a job and professional resume support.

I am so excited and so proud to say, the day I walk across that stage with a cap and gown and my NSCS gear, I will be so emotional it’s gonna be an absolute Cry Me a River scene. I don’t think I would be so committed if it wasn’t for my membership and support of NSCS.

Thank you so much for all your support and the opportunity you present to people like me who never thought something like this could ever happen to them. Thank you for believing in me when I wasn’t able to believe in myself! This membership means so much to me and I absolutely recommend it to anyone who is offered the opportunity. It can change your life and give you opportunities you could never even imagine.

One last thing! Once your a part of the NSCS family, your apart of the family for life! They never turn their back on us and that is family!

I have been a member of NSCS for over a year and a half. I became an officer for NSCS shortly after I joined for a year. I really like the idea of NSCS but am not pleased because I wish there was a better chance of getting scholarships. I joined because of the scholarships. I have not had much luck yet although I have only applied to 2. I do like the free seminars available. To me, NSCS seemed more like a virtual organization and I don't feel personally connected to it. This may be because I'm not using all the available resources. Maybe I will in the future and will give a much better review.

The National Collegiate Scholars is a very beneficial society to join. They offer many opportunities to help with continuing your education. There are scholarships you can apply for to help with cost. Another great benefit is their internship opportunities with flexible hours that helps build your skill set further and you even get paid. Once you begin to seek your career, make sure to list NSCS on your resume to stand out even further. The opportunities are endless and the time is now to build an essential portfolio for future career success. Preparation and inspiration are key. NSCS wants to pursue their scholars in every way possible to help with researching ways to help reduce expenses with furthering your education. NSCS wants us to know that we are more than just a GPA and we have self-worth. I personally am very grateful for the amazing opportunities they offer.

I initially did not intend to join NSCS due to the membership fee. However, after receiving my second invite, I decided to do more research and I discovered that you can actually apply for a fee waiver. I was very honest about my reasons for needing the financial assistance and was granted free membership. I'm so glad I chose to look into this organization further and join because I've gotten so much out of being a member. It is clear that NSCS cares about the success of each student. This organization offers many opportunities for studying abroad, helpful discounts, scholarships, and internships. These are great benefits, but the very best benefit I've gotten out of NSCS is a closed gap between online and campus students at my university.

It’s a great experience being apart of NSCS! When I went to the introduction ceremony, I learned a lot more on what they are about. They really inspired me to go for my dreams in life with their help and opportunities they give. I would recommend people joining them because it’s worth it in the long run. It might seem fake or a scam at first because of the price but it’s not and way more then you think of.

NSCS is an excellent opportunity for personal and professional growth.

I received two emails from this organization for me to register and although I felt iffy about this one I decided to give it a try. I do not regret joining for the membership fee because it has brought value to me in ways such as; Geico Insurance good student discount, the various scholarships available and the positive community vibes.

If anybody is looking for an opportunity, a place to network with other majors, or simply being proud of a society where you feel included this is a good idea to join or ask how you can join because this organization has criteria for joining.

When I was first invited to join NSCS, I wasn't sure if they were legitimate or not. However, after doing some research, I decided the fee was worthwhile if I got at least one scholarship. Although I haven't received any scholarships yet, I am hopeful that next year I will be able to apply to more. I also hope that having NSCS on my resume will be beneficial, but I'll just have to wait and see on that one.

I'm not sure this is the right "club" for me. The events seem like a regular club, and going into this, I thought it would be more like NHS in high school where community service events are frequent. This is more of a club to just stay active in events on campus.
