Collegiate Membership is open to any undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM).
If you are a college student but not majoring in any of the above discipline areas, you are eligible to become a Collegiate Affiliate member.
Alumni Membership is open to any individual who has received a degree in a science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) discipline.
If you are a professional, but did not receive a degree in any of the STEM fields, you are still eligible for membership as an Alumni Affiliate member.
Graduate students have the option to be Alumni members OR Collegiate members. We recommend you choose your membership type based on your level of involvement in NSBE. If you do more NSBE interaction on a University campus – Collegiate membership may be right for you.
If instead, you interact more with local professionals or feel like the undergraduate chapter doesn’t fit your needs, we welcome you as an Alumni member and encourage you to join or start your local Alumni Extension Chapter.
The Pre-College Initiative (PCI) program is designed to stimulate the interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields, or STEM. The goal is to encourage students in grades K–12 to attend college and pursue technical degrees. Our PCI program provides activities to help students discover firsthand how engineering and technology relate to the world around them and discover the excitement of academic excellence, leadership, technical development and teamwork.
