What is Beta Club?

The National Beta Club is the nation’s largest independent, educational, youth organization. Our purpose is to encourage and reward academic achievement, and to promote those qualities of character, that make for good citizenship. Our members learn to live by our motto, “let us lead by serving others”. Students interested in becoming involved in their school and wanting to help their community should join. The club usually has one service project per month to complete, and each individual must complete 30 hours of community service on his/her own per school year. One-time dues for new members is $35 and for returning is $25.


Why join Beta Club?

All Beta Club members are invited to attend the Texas State Beta Club Convention. Betas may compete in various academic, arts, and speaking competitions, as well as run for state office. Also, eligible members may qualify for scholarships. The National Beta Club Scholarship Program offers over $250,000 in scholarships to outstanding Beta Club members in their senior year. Over 200 scholarships are awarded each year. They range in value from $1,000 to $15,000.
