Our history is rooted in global excellence

NSEA was formed to identify and secure research opportunities for talented, underrepresented minorities including students and their instructors in HBCUs and MSIs. By doing so, NSEA’s goal is to help strengthen HBCU and MSI scientific and engineering programs, and create a system for early identification, and training of the next generation of future STEM researchers.

Our Purpose

To create a network of Research and Development Scientists, technologists, and engineers that will collaborate and nurture the next generation of scholars from underserved / underrepresented populations by providing science, technology, and engineering research and development opportunities.

NSEA, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) and ATI, are both nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organizations will collaborate to jointly empower Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) by bringing awareness of research and development opportunities and how to engage with the federal and commercial research and development marketplace.

The purpose of the agreement between ATI and NSEA is to provide a framework under which NSEA, and ATI shall work together collaboratively to support HBCUs and MSIs in their pursuit to participate in Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDTE) opportunities in order to meet the needs of the public and private sectors. Both ATI and NSEA are committed to a shared vision of providing awareness of RDTE opportunities and access to federal funding.
