McNair Scholars Program
The Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program is designed to increase graduate rates and post-baccalaureate success among first generation, low income students and students who come from a minority population that is underrepresented in graduate education. We work closely with students in completing their undergraduate requirements, encouraging and supporting their entrance into graduate programs, and tracking their progress to successful completion of advanced degrees.
The McNair Program is currently accepting applications, which are due by Monday, November 2. Applicants must meet certain requirements to be eligible to apply to the McNair Scholars program. Qualifications include being first-generation college students and considered low income, currently enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student at NMU and completed 40 credit hours with a 2.75 overall grade point average. Learn more about the qualification process and how to apply.
The McNair Scholars Program strives to provide students with the information and experiences that will make their graduate school transition easier and more rewarding.
