At first glance Yash Maheshwari looks like any other 18-year old. What you don’t know is that the city lad is among the Top 25 scholars in the world. Yash is among the group of 25 students selected worldwide, representing the National Society of High School Scholars, to be witness and experience the Stockholm Nobel Week in December 2016.
Currently pursuing his undergraduate studies from the prestigious National University of Singapore, the Guwahati boy has done his schooling from city-based school, Sanskriti The Gurukul. Post ISC 2016, he secured admission in NUS, Singapore where he is currently pursuing Mechanical Engineering.
What is NSHSS?
NSHSS is an honor society that recognizes top academic achievers from high schools around the world. Its mission is to recognize academic excellence among high school students and to encourage members to apply their unique talents, vision, and potential for the betterment of themselves and the world. NSHSS is an organization established to connect young scholars with each other and to provide additional resources to help them succeed in scholarship, leadership, and service. Members of NSHSS enjoy attending Society events held at colleges and universities, receiving our monthly publications with valuable resources about college & program opportunities, and applying for scholarships.
How is NSHSS unique?
NSHSS is not a simple recognition program or vanity press. There is no listing of students published or book to buy. As an active membership association of high-achieving students, NSHSS provides more than just recognition. Through its objective membership process, NSHSS brings the best students together in a dynamic international organization.
To be a part of the society, one must be among top 10 % of the class, 3.5 Cumulative GPA (4.0 Scale) or higher (or equivalent such as 88 on a 100-point scale), 1280 SAT score or higher (new exam 2016).
