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 2020, we awarded $100,000 in scholarships, ranging from $500 to $5,000, to 66 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, in partnership with the National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition, will again host the Transfer Student Leadership Summit. With a necessary pivot this year to an online format, they are excited to invite transfer student leaders and transfer-minded staff and faculty members from across the country. The Transfer Summit will be FREE to all student, staff, and faculty participants.
Our next Leadership Conference is scheduled for October 29-31, 2021 in San Antonio, TX. We will be staying at the Marriott Rivercenter, which is on the Riverwalk and within a short walk to the Alamo. We hope to see you there!
