The UCF McNair Scholars Program provides its scholars with year round support towards the goal of acceptance into quality graduate programs. Scholars have access to a dedicated and supportive staff as well as a multitude of resources that will make that goal a reality. We encourage all of our scholars to present their research in as many professional conferences as possible. Below you will find a listing of universities with application waivers for McNair scholars, information on the fellowships, and a listing of fully funded graduate school visitation programs.
