The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is the nation's premiere honor organization for high achieving college students. Founded in 1994 at The George Washington University, NSCS recognizes outstanding academic achievement among first- and second-year college students. Membership is based on grade point average and class standing, and is by invitation only. NSCS aims to honor, inspire and engage its members, and offers benefits including scholarships, leadership development and travel opportunities and career resources. NSCS is proud to have a chapter on your campus. For the third year, NSCS will sponsor its Distinguished Scholars Program this summer for NSCS members from around the country. Based in both Washington, D.C. and Boston, Massachusetts, participants will combine an intensive internship with academic study and exploration of one's city. NSCS will place students into eight-week, full-time, unpaid internships that are interesting, meaningful, and aligned with career and personal goals. The positions will give students an experience that will provide a competitive edge over their peers by enhancing their resumes and giving them the opportunity to develop a professional network. At the conclusion of their unpaid internship, members will have broadened their horizons, explored career possibilities and be better positioned to make decisions about future career options. In addition to the internship, students study the city they are living in and the challenges facing major U.S. cities today through an eight-week course at either Georgetown University or Boston University. Students will receive credit for the successful completion of the course: three credits from Georgetown University and four credits from Boston University. During the eight-week program, participants live on campus and participate in group events that highlight the unique culture of each city. Students will discover Boston and Washington, D.C. through extracurricular activities designed to expand their academic, professional and cultural horizons. Scholars will get to know each city through its people, food, music and much more. Participants will also make life-long friends and acquaintances with other NSCS members from chapters all over the US.
