Scholar Up: NSHSS Virtual Conference

On Saturday, May 23, 2020, NSHSS members, parents, educators, and partners from all over the world gathered behind their computer screens for the first NSHSS Member Event of its kind. Using a virtual event platform, the NSHSS event staff brought educational workshops, networking opportunities, and a college & career fair straight to the homes of our NSHSS families. These resources were available to registered attendees for a full 24-hours. Over 1,700 individuals registered for this event.

Workshops presented by our partners included:

  • “What Middle-Income Families Need to Know Now About Paying Less for College” presented by SMARTTRACK® College Funding
  • “Army ROTC Scholarships – A How-To Guide” presented by the event title sponsor, the U.S. Army
  • “Doing the Math: Private vs. Public College Tuition” presented by Oglethorpe University
  • “UCAS 101: How to Apply to UK Universities” presented by King’s College London
  • “Studying Management, Economics, Finance, Political Science and Computer Science at Bocconi University” presented by Bocconi University

In addition, our friend and colleague from the University of Stockholm, Elisabet Idermark, was kind enough to share her informative session, “The Nobel Prizes and NSHSS Events in Stockholm, Sweden” to encourage our members to join us this December for the 2020 Nobel Week Tour.

College and career fair exhibitors included U.S. Army ROTC, Columbia University, AcceptU, United Planet, Spelman College, Absolute Internship, Liberty University, University of Colorado Boulder, and many more outstanding institutions and organizations.

Attendees also had the opportunity to network with fellow members, college & career fair representatives, and NSHSS leaders within interactive chat rooms.

The NSHSS staff is greatly looking forward to bringing more virtual resources to our members around the globe!
