Golden Key International Honour Society believes in the advancement of students in the areas of Academics, Leadership and Service. Founded at Georgia State University in 1977, Golden Key rapidly flourished. In the first seven years, Golden Key held their first National Conference in Atlanta, awarded more than $100,000 in scholarships and established fifty chapters. During the next twenty-nine years, Golden Key has continued to grow into the organization it is today. There are more than two million members, over four hundred chapters in eight countries and $1 million in scholarships is awarded annually to members.
Golden Key recognizes high-achieving students for their commitment to academics—undergraduates in the top 15% of their class, and top-performing graduate students. Members connect with others who share their passion for learning, leading to a lifetime of scholarship and achievement.
Members cultivate leadership skills that will
serve them throughout their personal and professional lives. Golden Key provides opportunities to develop these skills locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Regional and international conferences bring like-minded people together to further a shared purpose. These experiences are invaluable in helping each member grow, both as an individual and as a leader.
Giving back is a core value of Golden Key. Chapters organize service activities that benefit local and international communities. The service projects range from educational projects to community outreach events, and individual members contribute numerous hours to similar causes each year. The goal is to have a positive impact on local neighborhoods and society as a whole. Our members report over 200,000 service hours performed annually.
Without your support, we wouldn't be able to provide our numerous benefits at no cost to our deserving membership.
