McNair Scholars Program

The McNair Scholars Program is designed to prepare students from low-income, first-generation and traditionally underrepresented groups for doctoral studies. McNair Scholars participate in courses, seminars and workshops on topics related to graduate school preparation, complete a paid research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor, and have the opportunity to present their research at local, regional and national conferences.

The McNair Scholars Program is a federal TRIO program funded at over 151 institutions across the United States by the U.S. Department of Education.
