The Black American Engineering Scholarship (BAES) was created to identify and elevate the best and brightest future engineers. The pool of talent within the BAE scholars is extensive and extraordinary. Every BAES recipient has a proven record of academic excellence and unyielding determination. With the help of influential teachers along the way, these students graduated from their high schools with distinction. Today, students – many of whom are first-generation collegians – have paved their way into highly competitive universities. They have incredible potential and immense promise.
The Robin Lally Promising Engineer Achievement Award was created to encourage and challenge the BAE Scholars on their path of excellence. Each year, one rising sophomore in the BAES program is selected to receive this prestigious award, its generous grants and the accompanying public recognition.
