"Everything I have today, I owe to BAES. Because of BAES, I can concentrate on developing my engineering abilities rather than simply figuring out how to pay for college. Thank you so much for the opportunity you have given to me and so many others!"

Trevor GoldstonBAES Scholarship Recipient

"You have lifted a burden off of me and my parent's shoulders and I truly couldn't be more grateful. Thank you for everything that you have done for me and minorities striving to achieve a post-secondary education."

Matthew SolomonBAES Grant Recipient

"Thanks to the BAES program, I’ve been exposed to a world of opportunity. This scholarship really helped alleviate some financial burdens associated with higher education."

Jade RasberryBAES Scholarship Recipient

"Without this program, I would not have been able to succeed as much as I have thus far. Not only did BAES allow me to attend the school of my dreams with absolutely zero college debt, but BAES was also able to partner me with a great engineer who is very successful in his field. "

Mamdooh Abdel-RhimBAES Scholarship Recipient

"Because of this scholarship program, I’ve been able to navigate college and know that there is a mentor and organization in my corner who are familiar with the college experience to support me through this new journey."

Rose McKentryBAES Mentorship Recipient

"This scholarship program has given me the chance to really focus on my education and work on building my connections at my university. Without as much monetary strain, I’ve been able to join different student organizations and clubs, and really focus on connecting with my professors more."

Toluloupe OgunfuwaBAES Scholarship Recipient

"Without this scholarship, cost may have prevented me from being able to attend my university and may have prevented me from making use of the many opportunities that come along with being a student here. Also, I received one of the most important resources I’ve received while in college, my mentor."
