Academic Level:

The McNair Scholars Program helps increase the attainment of Ph.D. degrees by students underrepresented in academia and the professoriate. The ultimate goal is to diversify university faculty nationwide.

Through participation in McNair Scholars program, we support students to become competitive applicants to graduate school. We do this through:

-Helping students become highly competitive graduate school applicants

-Individualized personal and academic advising

-Faculty and graduate student mentoring

-Graduate admissions workshops and intensive GRE training

-Opportunities to attend regional and national conferences

-Student experience presenting research at regional and national conferences

-Offering a stipend, room and board for summer research with faculty mentor.

McNair participants are either first-generation college students with financial need, or members of a group that is traditionally underrepresented in graduate education; they must have demonstrated strong academic potential. McNair Scholars, along with their faculty mentors and staff, are committed to increasing the attainment of graduate degrees students from underrepresented segments of society.
