Grant Writing Group

The NSLS is the nation’s largest leadership honor society.  Students are selected by their college for membership based on either academic standing or leadership potential.  Candidacy is a nationally recognized achievement of honorable distinction.  With 656 chapters, the NSLS currently has 1,028,721 members nationwide. 

In addition to honorable distinction, the NSLS provides a step-by-step program for members to build their leadership skills through participation at their campus or online.  Upon completion of the program, members receive their leadership certificate and take their place among the top student leaders at their campus and across the country.  Members are able to list their affiliation on all statements of personal accomplishment, including their resume.  

Membership is for life and provides access to benefits including scholarships and awards, exclusive on-campus events, employer recruitment through an online job bank, and discounts on computers, textbooks, grad school prep courses, insurance and much more.


I decided to go with this grant because the only requirement for the grant was volunteer community service hours which is somewhat of a specialty to me.

Since our inception, NSLS members have been “a force for good,” dedicating over a quarter-million hours to community service. The A Force for Good Award rewards our chapters for the community service work they have done over the course of one year.
