Welcome from the Foundation Board Chair
Welcome to the NSHSS Foundation website! Our goals are clear and defined—to support, encourage, and enable young people to pursue higher education by helping to eliminate financial barriers to entry.
Further, we are committed to establishing a deep bench of readymade leaders across the globe that will carry forward their passion for a more equitable, earth conscious, and sustainable future.

NSHSS Foundation Chair
The mission of The National Society of High School Scholars Foundation is to support education in the form of scholarships targeted to under-represented minorities who express interest in STEM career majors (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics); business, economics; or public policy. The Foundation was established by Claes Nobel, a senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes, to fulfill this mission.
The Foundation recognizes the need to produce more graduates with knowledge and skills in these disciplines in order to meet the competitive challenges of the global economy of the 21st century. We wish to contribute to this effort to steer students to become qualified leaders in these areas in order to improve the quality of life for all.
