According to their GuideStar program accomplishments listing and their IRS 990, only 3% of their nearly $8,000,000 budget goes to scholarships. 70% goes to salaries, office expenses and travel. They raise money from invited scholars to pay themselves to raise more money from invited scholars, etc., etc.

I have had a positive experience with NSCS since the day of my induction 11 years ago. NSCS has provided an encouraging and supportive environment for me to grow as a scholar, professional, and leader; become an active member of my community; and network with some amazing people. NSCS is far more than just an honor society - it is a great nonprofit, dedicated to helping individuals succeed and realize their potential!

I have been a member of NSCS for almost 15 years. During this time, I've connected with the organization in multiple capacities, all of which have resulted in me being more equipped as a leader, servicing the greater community with integrity and making life-long friends. NSCS is more then just a honor society, it is a group of individuals truly invested in a common vision to not only reach but excel in their life-calling.- C. Ginyard
