The NSHSS Be More Fund is a program set up to provide funding to NSHSS members and educators aspiring for world betterment. NSHSS co-founder Claes Nobel states, "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 over 1.7 million lifetime members from across the globe who believe in being the next agents of change and the next thought leaders. The Be More Fund celebrates and honors that. As part of the fund requirements, the top 50 applicants will be required to take part in a judged competition on November 13-14, 2020. This event will be a two-day virtual gathering with a panel of judges and mentors who will help the competing finalists hone and polish their presentation pitches to better their chances of earning one of the $10,000 grants. All competitors will leave the event even more inspired to continue their efforts to make the world a better place.
