The Evening of Excellence Scholarship Gala is a festive, high-profile event that is focused on raising scholarship funds to support the Edward Barnette Jr. Community Impact Scholarship. Ed Barnette was one of the early pioneers within NSBE and this scholarship was created to support those who share similar qualities with him. This scholarship provides individuals with the opportunity to pursue their degree in engineering whether they are NSBE Jr., collegiate, or professional members. This event also celebrates the accomplishments and achievements of the best and brightest in the STEM fields, community professionals, organizations and entrepreneurs. Join us for an all cocktail/semi-formal affair as we honor those who exemplify Black excellence.
