NSBE Bruin Alumni Scholarship

NSBE logo


NSBE GroupThe UCLA Chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE-UCLA) was founded on the campus in 1980 by Black Engineering students already enrolled in the School of Engineering as part of a larger effort to establish NSBE chapters at major universities across the nation. This overall effort has made NSBE one of the largest student-operated organizations in the country.

In October 2021, this scholarship initiative was created with the mission of investing in our future by supporting current members of NSBE at UCLA. We have engaged NSBE-UCLA alumni, private donors, and business partners committed to support the initiative, and partnered with the UCLA Black Alumni Association (UBAA) under the Legacy Scholarship Program to create an NSBE Bruin Alumni Scholarship for African-American students (freshman and returning/transfer students) majoring in Engineering at UCLA. Scholarships range from $500 to $10,000 and may be awarded for up to 4 years for each student.

Scholarships promote academic achievement and are an important part of any student’s journey. NSBE Alumni at UCLA recognize that financial support for African-American STEM students, particularly those majoring in the Engineering field, helps students get on the fast track to a rewarding career.
