About NSF Seattle
NSF Seattle is the Regional Chapter for North South Foundation. NSF Seattle had over 600 registrations last year being top 5 out of 60+ chapters in the country. 53 of our students who scored over the national cut-off were invited for the Nationals. We are extremely proud to announce that 6 of our students stood in top 10 in different contests at Nationals and secured the First place in Intermediate Science Bee, Junior Science Bee and Senior Brain Bee.
North South Foundation is a volunteer driven non-profit organization established in Illinois in 1989. It received tax-exempt status under the IRS Section 501(c)(3). All donations are tax-deductible.
Educational Contests organized by NSF in the US are designed to encourage academic excellence among Indian American children. The NSF spelling, vocabulary, math, essay writing, public speaking and geography bees are conducted annually in two steps. Children initially participate in Regional Contests. There are more than 65 centers in the US and Canada organizing the Regional Contests every year.
Winners of these contests are invited for the National Finals. National top rankers are awarded scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $250, redeemable in the winners’ freshman year of college. Many of the NSF children have also achieved top ranks in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, MATHCOUNTS and National Geographic Bee.
More Information can be found at US Contests.
The NSF Scholarship program in India is designed to encourage excellence among the poor children who excel academically but need help to attend college. Each scholarship is $250 per student per year. More Information is available at Indian Scholarships.
Hardworking volunteers, discounts from vendors and sponsorships for our awards help to keep our overheads to less than 5% and channel donated funds towards helping the needy.
