The National Achievers (NAS) was established with the purpose of encouraging students to excel both academically and culturally. NAS at FIU is sponsored by the Florida Education Fund (FEF). The National Achievers Society is a prestigious National Honor Society, which recognizes students for their academic and cultural achievements. Induction into the National Achievers Society brings nationwide attention to students who demonstrate excellence and provides opportunities for students to receive scholarships.
Membership in the National Achievers Society provides enrichment activities for students. The organization also provides opportunities for parents and other interested adults to stay involved in the student’s education. The National Achievers Society helps to equip students to identify and meet the challenges of the 21st century. Achievers and their parents have opportunities to participate in community service projects, literacy activities, field trips, academic competitions, and a Brain Bowl Competition.
The society emphasizes values, such as giving back to the community, the importance of studying and academic persistence and it encourages parents to become more engaged in their children’s education. For the past thirty years, thousands of graduating Achievers have been awarded academic scholarships to colleges and universities throughout the United States.
