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.
Preparing for Summer Research
This summer, 13 McNair Scholars will undertake an original research project. Their majors range from vocal performance/speech, language & hearing sciences to education to physics. We're pretty excited to watch these promising undergraduates take their first steps into the world of research and scholarly work. Stay tuned on our blog: mcnairnmu.wordpress.com.
The McNair Scholars Program strives to provide students with the information and experiences that will make their graduate school transition easier and more rewarding. Find out more on how we accomplish these objectives through our program. Click here to watch a short video about one McNair Scholar's research project from summer 2014: https://youtu.be/sumgVPoFnUw
