National Grid is investing $250,000 in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences to create and enhance programs that encourage Buffalo Public School students to pursue education and careers in science and engineering. The contribution was announced today in UB’s Jacobs Executive Development Center in downtown Buffalo.

The contribution will augment existing programs, such as the award-winning BEAM (Buffalo-area Engineering Awareness for Minorities) program, which prepares inner-city, minority, female and other underrepresented students for careers in science, engineering and technology through afterschool and summer programs, and launch new initiatives that introduce young minds to careers in high-demand engineering fields, like biomedical engineering and green energy.
