Scholarship Details:

The NSHSS Be More Grant program provides over $100,000 in funding to NSHSS members aspiring for world betterment. NSHSS co-founder Claes Nobel once said, "I believe that the human race can be fundamentally better than it is, and students like you will be the ones to change the world to make it what it can be. You are the most formidable proponents of change."

NSHSS is a community of driven individuals who believe that enough is never enough. It is a network of more than 2 million lifetime members from across the globe who believe in being the next agents of change and the next thought leaders.
