This year NSBE-HAE Professionals awarded 6 scholarships to 3 deserving local high school students and 3 collegiate students interested or currently studying STEM disciplines.
In previous years, we received applications from over 80 outstanding candidates. Our goal is to provide scholarships so we can continue to encourage and advise minority youth in their pursuit of an engineering career. We will also recognize our corporate strategic partners for all their willing support and dedication to our chapter.
