National HSF Club Chapters

Interested in starting your own House Scholarship Foundation Chapter at your local High School or Middle School?

Read more on how to register as an official National HSF Chapter Coordinator and support your local community through school-wide scholarship events and more.




The first step in our club chapter registration process is to register as one of our National HSF Chapter Coordinators for important updates on activities and events.
Next, you should find the right school administrator, teacher, or faculty member to be your Club Advisor. A Club Advisor should be able to oversee the club's operations and should be informed of any major decisions that you make.


Then, assemble your club cabinet with 4-8 officers. It is recommended that your cabinet includes the following positions:

- President
- Vice President
- Secretary
- Treasurer

Your cabinet may also include the following positions:

- Director of Communications
- Director of Publicity
- Director of Internal Affairs


Once you're done, follow your school's instructions on how to set up a club/club chapter. We'll keep in touch with you through the email you provided in your Club Coordinator registration for important progress updates and give you tips on how to run your chapter.


Some school require you to write up a club constitution or club bylaws. If you need a template, feel free to email us at info@nationalhsf.org.


IMPORTANT REQUIREMENTS:

1) We require each chapter to record minutes of their agenda for each club meeting. A sample minutes document should include the following:
