Obtaining this NSBE scholarship means I do not have to work 20+ hours a week at a part-time job while simultaneously maintaining a high GPA and leadership involvement on campus. I am able to focus on developing myself academically and professionally without having to stress about how I will be able to pay for my tuition and textbooks. The NSBE scholarship has given me peace of mind so I will be able to excel academically.
Being a NSBE Scholarship Recipient has positivity impacted my life by providing me the funds to pay of my remainder balance for the 2018-2019 school year. This Scholarship has helped me to continue my degree in Architectural Engineering by giving me the courage and motivation to keep going no matter what my circumstances are. Thank you so much and I am internally grateful.
NSBE scholarships significantly contributed to alleviating the financial challenges that I faced in my pursuit of an engineering degree. The scholarships granted me the opportunity to contribute toward fulfilling the legacy and overcoming the challenges that otherwise would have hindered my propensity to excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community. The best way to show gratitude is by paying it forward to ensure NSBE vision.
Receiving the NSBE scholarship has helped my family out tremendously. It makes me feel great that I can help take some of the financial burden off of my parents. It has also provided me with confidence because it has shown me that people support me and my dream of becoming a professional Civil Engineer. I am grateful for this amazing opportunity and wish to make the most out of the next four years.
Receiving a NSBE scholarship has strongly impacted my pursuit of an engineering degree in a positive way. It is due to gracious scholarship programs as such that I'm even able to pursue a college education. Furthermore, my NSBE scholarship has enabled me to shift my focus to my academics instead how I can afford my academics. Thank you, NSBE.
Receiving an NSBE Scholarship has helped me tremendously. At the time when I was writing my scholarship letter, I was desperate for funding so that I can finish my undergraduate degree. The scholarship came just in time to help me focus my time and effort into my education. As a result of this focus, I was able to achieve a 4.0 during my final semester of undergrad.
Words cannot describe how grateful I am to NSBE for the BCA scholarship that I was awarded. With the scholarship fund, I was able to purchase the recommended study materials for the NCEES Civil-Structural Professional Engineering (P.E.) license exam which I successfully passed. Getting the P.E license while in graduate school is such a rare feat, that I was awarded an outstanding graduate student award by the University of Idaho Graduate Professional Student Association (GPSA) with the committee testament on my “distinguished academic and scholarly contributions, strong leadership initiatives reflected in community outreach and a focus on improving minority opportunity and access”. Such testament aligns with NSBE mission statement of increasing the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.
I was filled with gratitude when I got the scholarship award’s congratulatory message! The fund came at the most critical time when its absence might have severed my continued academic excellence. I was able to buy more academic resources that are still paving way for my quality research, whist still helping me maintain my Apex scholarly position; the latter being perfectly in line with NSBE’s mission of greatly increasing the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.
With this scholarship, I will be able to continue to develop myself as an electrical engineer and as a leader on my campus with no financial worries. This upcoming semester I will be going into my core electrical engineering classes, where I will be able to learn more in depth about hardware, while being able to explore software on my own time. In addition, I will be able to continue to make an impact on my campus and in my community through my NSBE Chapter.
The NSBE Scholarship has allowed me to place focus on my academics, NSBE Chapter, and volunteer opportunities! I have been able to develop the Iowa State NSBE Chapter through sponsorships and have begun helping develop a 50k's Coalition 5K at Iowa State. This 5K will raise awareness and donate to the 50K Coalition’s goals which are to produce 50,000 diverse engineering graduates annually by 2025.
Receiving the NSBE scholarship has positively impacted my pursuit of an engineering degree. The scholarship has lifted the financial burden creating a balance between work, school and involvement. Receiving this scholarship personally allowed me to focus more on school instead of the economic aspects and allowed me to contribute to the flourishing of diversity on my campus.
Receiving this scholarship helped to relieve stress, which allows me to focus on my classes and NSBE chapter even more. I'm truly thankful that NSBE was able to help myself and other students in achieving the goals of the mission statement.
As a recipient of the NSBE scholarship, this fund has facilitated the creation of an avenue in which I have the necessary means to procure required books, access online journals, attend conferences and network with experts and young researchers in the field. This opportunity granted fosters the generation of positive ideas and future collaborations that will help me support continuously the black community.
The Study Abroad Scholarship enabled me to go to Panama last semester on an engineering immersion program. At Panama, I was able to conduct water quality projects which was really special as I was able to directly apply knowledge I learnt in a Industrial Waste and Solids Class I had taken previously. I am very grateful for NSBE for providing me with this opportunity!
Receiving this scholarship granted me with the funds I needed to continue my studies in my graduate program. I was able to reach doctoral candidacy, and it brought me great fulfillment knowing that NSBE believed in me and what I was doing to better the world around me.
Aside the monetary value of the scholarship, it also served as a reinforcement of an excellent academic standing. When I got the scholarship congratulatory email, I was elated and further encouraged to keep working hard towards achieving a stellar performance in my engineering education. For that I say Thank You to NSBE.
Since receiving the John Deere Corporate Scholarship, I have earned a job offer in the Lockheed Martin F-35 Production Program Office through a summer internship and become Vice President of our UT Tyler NSBE Chapter. Awarded scholarship money allowed me to attain these honors through focusing on academic success, job performance, and professional development. Giving back is important, and I would like to pass along the gifts I received to as many NSBE students as possible during my senior year. Thank you John Deere and NSBE for the opportunity to work hard and be rewarded, blessed, and full of gratitude!
Fist off, without this scholarship I wouldn't have graduated as soon as I was able to due to financial aid canceling grants to my student account. This scholarship was a blessing in disguise and it came at the right time. I also gained superior confidence after receiving this scholarship and my motivation is at an all time high. I believe I can accomplish anything I set my mind to. Thank you once again NSBE for helping me graduate and believing in me.
Receiving a NSBE scholarship has significantly removed the burden of worrying about obtaining finances to cover my school expenses. I have been able to focus more on classes, NSBE activities, and other club activities I am fond of and become a greater participant.
Thank you for the opportunity to be a NSBE Fulfilling the Legacy Scholar!
The scholarship has enabled me to participate in an overseas STEM program focused on understanding the different industries in Morocco, the challenges in each sector, and how they operate in a political and cultural context. This program will be my first time traveling outside of North America and will better inform my engineering career path as someone considering working in renewable energy. Thanks NSBE!
Receiving the Fulfilling the Legacy Scholarship has helped me continue to fulfill the legacy. It has allowed me to continue to be very active in my NSBE chapter whilst being a student and working to excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.
Being awarded a NSBE Scholarship has helped my engineering journey a great deal especially as an international student. I was notified that right before the annual national conference and was able to meet and network a number of NSBE professionals just from being a scholarship recipient. Applying for the scholarship was very easy and straightforward. I would implore all Engineering student to apply!
Receiving a NSBE scholarship helped relieve the financial burdens that were present during my senior year. I was able to continue volunteering, participating in extracurricular, and succeeding academically without having to worry about how I was going to pay off my tuition.
