Established by the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering to support minority Engineering students based on academic performance, demonstrated leadership abilities, and career goals. To be eligible for the NACME Scholars Program students must enroll and be pursing a degree in an engineering program at a partner university, be a URM, and maintain a minimum required GPA (from 2.5 – 2.8). For Fellowships, GPA requirements differ according to the fellowship.
Through partnerships with like-minded entities, NACME’s scholarship program for under-represented minorities serves as a catalyst to increase the proportion of Black/African American, Native/American Indian, and Latinx/Hispanic American young women and men in STEM careers. We inspire and encourage excellence in engineering education and career development toward achieving a diverse and dynamic American workforce.
