Our History FAME, Inc. was established in 1976 as one of the nation’s FIRST non-profit STEM organizations, long before the STEM acronym became globally recognized. FAME was also one of the FIRST STEM organizations uniquely serving girls and other under-represented minorities. FAME—Forum to Advance Minorities in Engineering—was formed by the DuPont Company to address the lack of Women, African American, Hispanic, and Native American engineers and scientists in the industry. Since its inception, FAME has served over 6,800 students with a nationally recognized curriculum. The organization acts as a direct link to industry leaders, with FAME students enjoying such benefits as internships, scholarships, and rare opportunities to interact with top executives, engineers, scientists, and technology specialists at Fortune 500 organizations, many of whom are themselves alums of FAME.

The experiences I had with trips to different companies to understand what types of scientists and engineers worked at those companies were truly exciting and shaped my career goals. By the time I was in 10th grade I knew I wanted to be an Industrial Engineer….I’ve since graduated with Bachelor and Masters degrees in Industrial Engineering from Florida State University.” Yoshino W. White, FAME Alum 1998 “To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science .” - Albert Einstein Because of You, They Can * We would also like to acknowledge our individual donors and anyone whose name may have been inadvertently omitted, and would like to extend our warm appreciation to all our supporters.
