The Clemson chapter of Sigma Xi, The National Research Society is initiating its yearly membership drive. If you are not currently a member of Sigma Xi, we encourage you to consider joining. If you are currently a member, we encourage you to consider nominating colleagues or student (graduate or undergraduate) who are not yet members. If you are an associate member and would like to be promoted please fill out a nomination form.
There are two levels of membership:
Full Member: Any individual who has shown noteworthy achievement as an original investigator in a field of pure or applied science is eligible for election or promotion to full membership in the Society by a chapter or the Committee on Qualifications and Membership. Noteworthy achievement in research specified for election or promotion to full membership must be evidenced by publications, patents, written reports or a thesis or dissertation. Membership in the Society is neither linked to the possession of any degree nor contingent upon belonging to some other organization.
Associate Member: Any individual who has, through initial research achievement in a field of pure or applied science, shown aptitude for research which is expected in due course to lead to the fulfillment of the requirements for full membership, is eligible for election to associate membership by a chapter or the Committee on Qualifications and Membership. Research aptitude specified for election to associate membership must be evidenced by independent investigation ordinarily resulting in a written report. Associate membership is offered to encourage young investigators with promise to continue careers in research. In making the nomination, the nominator attests to the nominee's potential for future promotion to full member.
