Welcome to the official web site of the Tau Sigma National Honor Society – a national honor society designed exclusively for transfer students! Our mission is to "recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students." Tau Sigma provides its members opportunities to earn scholarships, attend leadership conferences, take leadership positions in the university, serve others at the university and in the community, all while developing friendships and becoming a more integral part of the university to which they transferred!
In 2022, we awarded $100,000 in scholarships, ranging from $500 to $5,000, to 71 different members! Congratulations to those who received a scholarship! We will be gathering applications for the next round of scholarships again this fall.
The Transfer-Year Experience program at UT Austin will again host the Transfer Summit this year as a series of 90-minute webinar sessions on April 4, 6, and 7! This convening will be FREE to all student, staff, and faculty participants. The call for proposals for student-led sessions is now open! They would love to showcase a program, training, or transfer story from your institution with students, staff, and faculty from across the country. Last year, they had over 600 registered attendees, and the session recordings have been viewed over 1,000 times. Your session could inform and inspire real change for transfer students!
Our next Leadership Conference is scheduled for September 23-25, 2022 in Orlando, FL. We will be staying at the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando, which is within walking distance of Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. We hope to see you there!
