Golden Torch Awards

The National Society of Black Engineers is the premier organization serving African Americans in engineering and technology. As a technical community service association, NSBE is the link between the African American community and the world of technology.

NSBE supports and promotes the aspirations of professionals, students and pre-college students. The mission the founders set forth in 1975, “To increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community, “ has blossomed into an organization with chapters worldwide.

The Annual Golden Torch Awards link the accomplishments of distinguished African- American engineers and technical professionals with college bound dreams of pre-college students. Since its inception GTA has served as a night to honor the best and the brightest in technology.


What is GTA?

The Golden Torch Awards (GTA) recognizes excellence among technical professionals, corporate, government and academic leaders, and university and pre-college students. These awards illustrate the possibilities that can be cultivated through support and responsibility. The proceeds of GTA are used to create college scholarships for gifted high school students.


History of GTA

The idea of the Golden Torch Awards came under the vision of the Executive Director Mr. Charles Walker in 1998. Mr. Walker believed since NSBE is a major force in increasing the number of blacks into the science, technology, engineering, and math fields, NSBE should also highlight the best and brightest in the industry. After the vision of Golden Torch Awards came into existence a proposal was submitted to the National Executive Board and was approved. Once approved a steering committee was put in place to execute the vision and make it a reality. The first Golden Torch Awards took place at the 24th Annual National Convention in Anaheim, California.

The Golden Torch Awards is the closing extravaganza on the annual convention. The Golden Torch Awards is the culminating awards ceremony of the society. Each year, this event honors the highest academic achievers and celebrates industry leaders in technology. Formerly a private ticketed event, in recent years the Golden Torch Awards has been made open to all conference participants and is the highest attended event of the week.

Applying for NSBE scholarships was a life saver for me. When I login to NSBE Connect I can easily see which ones I qualify for and the requirements I need to fulfill. Since receiving a scholarship through NSBE it has opened doors for me to network with others, travel and lifted a heavy financial burden off my family. I wouldn't be in as good of a position if it weren't for NSBE scholarships.

Applying for the NGF-NSBE Scholarship in particular was an extremely easy process with benefits that exceeded my expectations. I only had to have my GPA verified in my account, an updated resume and answer about 10 short answer questions about myself. The program has enriched my college experience by giving me the opportunity to grow as a business professional through careers services supposed and professional development webinars. I have been able to take the tools learned and apply them to many of my professional settings.

Applying to NSBE scholarships is truly the easiest thing to do. They don't take long at all. You literally just provide basic information. Your GPA has to be verified, you have to provide some academic history and most likely answer a few essays questions and boom, and you are done. By applying to NSBE scholarships, I have been able to further my collegiate education without having to worry about how I'm going to pay back student loans after I graduate. Thank you, NSBE!
