NSBE Impact Scholarship

Continuous Cycle of Giving
Edward Barnette’s life represents the continuous cycle of giving from mentor to mentee. In recognition of Ed’s legacy of mentorship and the countless other professionals who make it their personal mission to give continuously, the Edward E. Barnette, Jr. Community Impact Scholarship was created. The scholarship fund will act as the NSBE Professionals’ continuous financial contribution to our 2025 goal.

Grassroots Engagement
There is a great untapped power in NSBE’s professional membership. With just the slightest supporting word or the smallest financial contribution, we can change lives. This scholarship is a vehicle for both. This is the professionals’ direct contribution to addressing individual financial need as a barrier to success, and we will seek to raise no less than $25,000 dollars to support this effort. It directly engages professional members as individual donors, and through our chapters aims to encourage and recognize the amazing community centric impact of our members.
