Welcome to the Missouri Pi chapter of Alpha Chi!
The Alpha Chi National College Honor Society is a coeducational academic honor society and a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. Membership is by invitation only, and we accept students who place in the top ten percent of their junior, senior, or graduate class from all academic disciplines. With some 300 chapters, located in almost every state, the organization inducts approximately 11,000 members annually. Since 1922, the purpose of this prestigious national honor society has been to promote academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and to honor those who achieve such distinction.
What are the benefits of membership?
Alpha Chi gives the most gifted students a place to thrive.
We help to fuel a robust intellectual life both inside and outside the classroom, offering high-achieving students opportunities to engage with a community of peers on campus and across the country.
- Invigorate your intellectual life.
We celebrate and cultivate the life of the scholar and often sponsor lectures, forums, debates, workshops, and publication opportunities, events that cultivate the scholarly community and benefit both members and non-members alike.
- Enjoy leadership and service opportunities.
Alpha Chi offers resume-building opportunities as leaders of campus chapters and national governance. Project planning, public speaking, organizational development, and effective fundraising are examples of valuable skills that you can learn.
- Collaborate across the university.
We want to break down departments and institutional divisions. Multidisciplinary in membership, we want to facilitate interaction and friendships among the most high-achieving students.
- Compete for scholarships and financial awards.
The Alpha Chi National College Honor Society offers many grants, scholarships, fellowships, awards, and travel stipends to support undergraduate and graduate scholarship.
