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.
New Scholars Selected
The application period is now closed. We've accepted 15 new McNair scholars who will join the program in Winter 2016. The McNair program recruits a new cohort of scholars every fall semester. Check back in Fall 2016 to apply to be part of this prestigeous program.
The McNair Scholars Program strives to provide students with the information and experiences that will make their graduate school transition easier and more rewarding.
