Sigma Xi is the scientific honor society at Knox. Members must have a Ph.D. in a scientific discipline for a full membership. Associate members in the midst of their education may be nominated, yet they need to have completed a significant research project, present the results of their research at an off-campus forum, and show promise for the future. Two full-fledged members of Sigma Xi must nominate a student for associate membership. The executive board must approve of the nomination before a student can become a member.
Sigma Xi was founded in 1886 at Cornell University, and has over 60,000 members worldwide. More than 200 Sigma Xi members have received the Nobel Prize, most recently the 2006 Physics prize, which went to members John C. Mather and George F. Smoot.
