We encourage involvement of students at the activities of the SCS through Student Memberships and/or through Student Chapters.
Potential Benefits of SCS Student Chapters to Future M&S Professionals:
Establishing a New Student Chapter
To establish a new SCS Student Chapter, get started by:
- Selecting a Faculty Mentor who is an SCS member in good standing
- Choosing student officers for your new Student Chapter
- Completing a Petition Form which can be provided by SCS if you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and request the form.
- Drafting Bylaws for your Student Chapter. Sample Student Chapter Bylaws can be found here.
Next, submit the Petition Form and a copy of your Student Chapter’s Bylaws to the SCS Executive Committee at email@example.com. Upon approval by the SCS Executive Committee, your Faculty Mentor will receive a letter from SCS authorizing your new Student Chapter. Please allow 10 weeks for approval.
Keeping Your Student Chapter in Good Standing
Keep your Student Chapter in good standing with SCS by:
- Holding at least one meeting of your Student Chapter
- Electing student officers in accordance with your Bylaws
- Submitting an Activity Report by June 30 of each year reporting on your activities in the preceding academic year. A fillable PDF of the Activity Report can be requested by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
As an incentive for timely submission of your Activity Report, SCS will authorize up to $150 per academic year toward reimbursement of Student Chapter activities. The reimbursement request is included as part of the Activity Report.
