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.

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).

NACME Scholars Program

The NACME’s Scholars Program provides scholarship support in the form of grants and professional development programs to partner institutions who commit to ensure increased enrollment, and successful matriculation of under-represented minority students in the fields of engineering and computer science.

University Eligibility

Academic institutions that wish to become a NACME Partner University must demonstrate a commitment to under-represented minority student success that is evidenced in their recruitment, admission, retention, education, and graduation of Black/African American, Latinx/Hispanic-American, and Native/American Indian engineering and computer science students

Student Eligibility

NACME Scholars are currently selected by partnering Universities. If you are matriculating at a NACME Partner University as a computer science or engineering major, please contact the NACME Representative at your institution to determine their process for consideration. To be eligible for a NACME scholarship applicants must:

  • Major in engineering or computer science.
  • Hold a Minimum Cumulative GPA of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale.
  • Commit to submit an updated resume annually (by July 1st of each year) in the NACME Career Center.
  • Provide full contact information, cumulative GPA and an unofficial transcript each year to NACME.

Payment Distribution

NACME distributes grant payments in two installments each academic year. Scholarship dollar amount varies by NACME Partner Institution. For details on scholarship amounts and renewable timeframes please contact the NACME representative at your partner University.

Reporting Requirements

The academic institution provides NACME with an annual report 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 each award period. 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 under-represented minority engineering and computer students or non-minority engineering students), and stable or decreasing time to degree.
