Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society

The Sigma Xi Society is a national honor society which recognizes individuals for research achievement or promise. Membership in Sigma Xi is by nomination. Any active (dues-paying) full member may nominate an individual for membership. Individuals who meet the qualifications for membership may also request nomination to membership. Each year the Society initiates more than 5,000 new members. Over the course of the Society’s distinguished history, nearly 200 members have won the Nobel Prize and many more have earned election to the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering.
