NSBE Golden Torch Awards

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.

She attended college for the first time in her 70's. Loretta Journey was born the segregated south before 1910 and was taught to read in secret from the white family for which she did domestic work. She never had the opportunity to complete high school nor attend college. Damaune Journey is the grandson of these to phenomenal women who, through their guidance and example, became National Chairperson of NSBE, struggled and graduated from the University of Michigan with a bachelors degree in engineering, and became the only African-American section president his year at Harvard Business School, where he graduated with an MBA.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!
