UPDATED Spring 2024 NSBE-MEET High School Outreach

Due to conflicting schedules, the Spring 2024 NSBE-MEET High School Outreach has been moved to March 28th to March 30th. During these dates,  the Minority Engineering Educational Task (M.E.E.T.), the Rutgers University Chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (N.S.B.E.), will be hosting our semi-annual High School Outreach Program.

The Minority Engineering Educational Task is a student-run organization.

The High School Outreach Program has been a part of our organization's Pre-College Initiative (PCI) Program for over 20 years. The PCI program strives to stimulate pre-collegiate student interest in the S.T.E.M. - science, technology, engineering, and mathematics - in response to the lack of minorities pursuing technical degrees.

Each semester, high school students from all over New Jersey and surrounding areas are invited to spend a weekend at Rutgers University School of Engineering to receive a hands-on overview of the benefits of a career in engineering. Students will receive guidance from enrolled college students in various engineering disciplines as information about the collegiate admission and financial aid process. Students will have a better understanding of college life; it's our sincere hope that students will get a sense of their future goals, strengths, and weaknesses. The High School Outreach Program is highly recommended for high school juniors and seniors interested in a S.T.E.M. field or attending Rutgers University.

Please complete and submit the attached application. THE DEADLINE OF THE APPLICATION IS March 1st, 11:59 PM. Please keep in mind that incomplete or late applications will not be accepted.
