The idea of honoring role models was an early motivation for the founding of MAES. By identifying and showcasing the achievements of Latinos in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields, the organization would have living and breathing examples that dreams are achievable through education and hard work.

The MAES Bravo Awards are designed to recognize the best and brightest Latino engineers and scientists at every level of career development and in any technical career. The individual award categories connect together and are built upon the belief that role models are needed in all phases of the career pipeline from kindergarten through executive. Honorees are recognized annually at the forthcoming Symposium. Nominate someone today!
