Tau Sigma National Honor Society 2019-2020 Scholarships

Tau Sigma National Honor Society will award multiple scholarships of between approximately $500 to $5,000. The total amount of scholarships awarded will be approximately $100,000.

Scholarship applications received by the deadline will be evaluated by the Tau Sigma Scholarship Review Committee (made up of Tau Sigma chapter advisors). Upon completing the evaluation of the applicants, the Committee will provide the Executive Director with the names of the scholarship recipients. The scholarships will be announced by December 20, 2019 and awarded in mid-January 2020.


Only applicants enrolled in a college or university for at least one academic term during the calendar year 2020 will be considered. The applicant’s future enrollment does not have to be at their current institution and can be at either the undergraduate or graduate level.

Previous Tau Sigma scholarship winners are not eligible.

The Scholarship Review Committee will evaluate the applicants based on their:

  • Involvement in and service to the chapter
  • Involvement in and service to the university
  • Service to the community
  • Academic achievement

While the Scholarship Review Committee does not dictate the specific weight that each of the above criteria will carry, involvement in and service to the chapter and university will be weighed more heavily than the other criteria.
