Universities

What We Do

NACME has always provided scholarship money to underrepresented minority students through the nation’s universities. NACME manages its programs through leveraged partnerships with universities, encouraging those universities to increase the retention-to-graduation rates of all minority students. NACME provides scholarships to students in the form of block grants to universities and in return asks those universities to promote a campus environment that embraces diversity and inclusiveness, and provides encouragement and support for underrepresented minority engineering students.

The universities benefit from participation in NACME’s annual meeting, where best practices are shared on college recruitment, retention, and graduation. The 2015 meeting, "Celebrating NACME's Partnerships", was sponsored by the Northrop Grumman Company. Below you can view the presentations and agenda.

Partner Universities

NACME Partner Universities demonstrate their leadership by

  • Recruiting high-achieving URM students from high schools and community colleges;
  • Implementing admissions policies and procedures that reflect a broad approach beyond SAT/ACT scores and GPAs in evaluating student potential to succeed;
  • Providing programs that engage students in the engineering culture and expose them to opportunities to transform their college life into an enriching experience;
  • Striving to improve the retention to graduation of underrepresented minority engineering students.

Click here to see a regional list of the institutions that NACME currently partners with.

 

How to Become a Partner University

Academic institutions that wish to participate in the NACME Scholars program must demonstrate a commitment to underrepresented minority student success that is evidenced in their recruitment, admission, retention, and graduation of African American, American Indian, and Latino engineering students.

Participating universities and colleges enter into a five-year partnership, which is reviewed annually to compare institutional performance against established enrollment and graduation goals. NACME expects evidence of continuous improvement toward parity. Such indicators of success would include in the aggregate rising GPAs, reduction in retention rate between NACME scholars and comparison group (e.g., other minority engineering students or non-minority engineering students), and stable or decreasing time to degree.

The program was created to achieve the following goals:

  • Provide financial support to minority engineering students who have demonstrated financial need.
  • Leverage NACME’s partnerships with academic institutions to increase the retention-to-graduation rate of all minority engineering students enrolled at those schools.
  • Increase the capacity and capability of academic partner institutions to recruit, admit, retain, educate, and graduate minority engineering students.

Best Practices in Graduation Rates

These academic support systems are working for underrepresented minority (URM) students across the country. The University of Seattle reports using NACME funding to back students who are in their final quarters of study, when traditional funding sources are exhausted. And the University of Alaska in Anchorage, which serves about 300 Native American engineering students, has a 70% graduation-to-retention rate through their Alaska Native Sciences & Engineering Program (ANSEP).

Minority Engineering Scholarships

 

 

NACME STEM Minority Scholarship Finds

NACME is responsible for more than $4 million in scholarships awarded annually to underrepresented minority (URM) students, with more than $1.6 million awarded in NACME’s funded scholarships and $2.4 million more through our partner institutions’ in-kind support. In 2016, NACME expects to support approximately 1,300 underrepresented minority engineering students.

 

Scholarships for Engineering Students K-12

Starting in January 2016, NACME will no longer have direct involvement in K-12 programming. As a result, we will not be administering pre-engineering scholarships at this time.

NACME Scholars (Block Grant) Program

Through the NACME Scholars Program, NACME provides block grants to colleges and universities that, in turn, award the money to talented African American, American Indian, and Latino students enrolled in engineering programs as part of their financial aid packages.

The NACME’s Scholars (Block Grant) Program provides minority college scholarship support in the form of a lump sum grant to partner institutions who enroll students from three sources – first-year students identified by NACME or the partner universities, transfer students from two-year colleges, and currently enrolled students who have completed at least one year of engineering study.

University Eligibility

Academic institutions that wish to participate in the scholars grant program must demonstrate a commitment to minority student success that is evidenced in their recruitment, admission, retention, education, and graduation (RAREG) of African American, American Indian, and Latino engineering college students.

Student Scholarship Eligibility

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. Click here for more details about underrepresented minority group scholarships (African American, American Indian, and Latino) and other special scholarship programs for minorities.

Academic performance criteria for NACME support differs somewhat for each student stream.

  • High school seniors must be accepted by the university’s college of engineering (at the end of the freshman year, NACME assumes a minimum GPA of 2.5 on a scale of 4.0).
  • Currently enrolled students must have completed a calculus, physics, or chemistry course, earning at least a “B,” and be accepted into engineering.
  • Two-year community college transfers, i.e., those accepted for their third year of engineering study, must enter with at least a 2.7 cumulative GPA on a scale of a 4.0 and an Associate Degree in engineering science (or the equivalent program of study).

For more information about the NACME’s Scholars (Block Grant) Program contact Dr. Chris Smith, Director, Scholarships and University Relations, at 914-539-4316, or email at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Payment Distribution

NACME distributes grant payments in two installments each academic year. Under the scholars program, each entering freshman scholar is eligible for $12,500 for up to five years. Two-year transfers and currently enrolled sophomores and beyond are eligible for the identical annual support for up to three years of higher education. Undergraduate scholarship fund amounts may vary based on the scholar’s financial need to cover the cost of education.

Reporting Requirements

The academic institution provides NACME with a report at the end of the grant period that includes graduation and retention rates as well as biographical information, GPA, and dollar amount of support for each NACME Scholar.

Expectations for Continuance

Partnership agreements are reviewed at the end of five years. Grants are renewed annually to compare institutional performance against established enrollment and graduation goals. NACME expects evidence of continuous improvement toward parity. Such indicators of success would include in the aggregate rising GPAs, reduction in retention rate between NACME Scholars and comparison group (e.g., other minority engineering students or non-minority engineering students), and stable or decreasing time to degree.

NACME In-Kind/Associate Programs

We also encourage universities and colleges not already engaged in our NACME Scholarship Programs to provide in-kind scholarship support to underrepresented minority engineering students attending your school.

 

Fellowships (Special Scholarships)

The NACME Fellows Program was created to provide an opportunity for individuals and companies interested in establishing a named minority scholarship program in support of NACME’s mission to increase the representation of underrepresented minorities in engineering. This will be accomplished by ensuring that more engineering scholarships for minorities are available.
