NSBE Jr & Collegiate Chapter Excellence Awards
The NSBE-BMAC Chapter Excellence Awards are granted to reward pre-college and collegiate chapters of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) in the Baltimore metropolitan area for excellence in pursuing the NSBE mission of increasing “the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.”

William Thomas Batten Jr. Leadership Award
William Thomas Batten worked for Westinghouse/Northrop Grumman Corporation for over 32 years and served as an executive board member for NSBE-BMAC and supported multiple chapter events and activities. To honor the contributions of Mr. Batten to the advancement of NSBE-BMAC, the engineering profession, his community, and all who were privileged to know him NSBE-BMAC established the William Thomas Batten Jr. leadership award in July 2011 to offer financial support to college students who are pursuing studies in Science, Engineering, Technology, or Mathematics (STEM), exhibiting the virtues of the NSBE mission, and are serving in leadership positions at the collegiate level.
