America has been honoring brilliant students through honor societies since 1921. Educators began to notice the need for subject specific honor societies in America’s high schools in the 1980's. Since then, new honor societies have sprung up to recognize and encourage students in such areas as English, Art, French, and Spanish. Until now, there has been no national honor society for Science. In this era of rapidly changing technologies and scientific advancement, it is time to encourage and recognize high school students in the Sciences.
SNHS is a prominent scientific organization that will engender a new group of young thinkers who will be the future of industry, research, and scientific exploration for America.
(SNHS is not directly affiliated with the National Honor Society but we do maintain a cordial and professional relationship with that organization.)
The scholarship applications period for the 2016-2017 school year is now closed. Those applications have been reviewed. Notifications are being sent to the winners and to those who have not won. We had an incredibly awesome group of applicants.
Those winners of the 2016-2017 school year scholarship winners are posted here.
We have also instututed a new awards program. We will follow the 43 winners for this year scholarships. All of these winners will be able to apply to get another scholarship award based on grades and performance toward their science or engineering degree. More on this will be posted during the school year.
