Scholar Scoop is the smart news and information resource for high achieving scholars.

The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS): We’re the awesome honor society (we hear this from members all the time).  Here’s how it works: Make sure NSCS has a chapter on your campus, study hard when you get to college, get an official invitation to join from NSCS (we only invite the top 20%) & make the smart decision to join. We will then start providing you with a lifetime of benefits. What exactly can we do for you? Click here to find out!

Meet the Scoopers (the dedicated people delivering you fresh, informative and always smart scoop):

Stephen E. Loflin
Steve is the Executive Director and Founder of NSCS. As an undergraduate and throughout his professional career he has been focused on the academic success of first and second year college students.  He got the idea to start NSCS in the early 90’s  while working at The George Washington University. He noticed that there were some pretty great honor societies but realized, more than anything, that there needed to be one truly amazing honor society that was active, engaging and creating a lifetime of benefits and opportunities for its members.   NSCS was started on April 30, 1994 and is now making a difference and creating value for members who have joined chapters on campuses in every state, DC and Pureto Rico.  WOW!  Are you a member?  You can learn more about Steve here.
