12th grade Senior Beta members are eligible to apply for a National Beta Scholarship.
Selection of National Beta Scholarship winners is based on a number of factors, with an emphasis on academic excellence, demonstrated leadership, commendable character, school and community service, as well as participation in National Beta Club activities.
Improvements have been made to the 2020-2021 National Beta Scholarship Application. Given disruptions in testing caused by COVID-19, ACT/SAT scores will not be required by applicants. We hope this adjustment allows all students the opportunity to apply regardless of their ability to take the SAT and/or ACT.
