Program Message

Welcome to the NMU McNair Scholars program.

McNair scholars are undergraduate students who have the desire, drive, and capability to complete their baccalaureate degrees and continue beyond to a Ph.D. program.

The McNair Scholars program is funded by the U.S. Department of Education to serve first-generation college bound students who are also low income. Additionally, students who are traditionally underrepresented in doctoral programs are eligible to apply.

The program assists scholars in developing study and research skills, navigating graduate school admissions, finding academic tutoring and actively participating in a summer of real research with a faculty mentor. This research results in a publishable paper and presentation poster.

We encourage you to join the McNair Scholars program, as an undergraduate participant, a faculty mentor or simply a supportive partner. Let us help you explore your potential.
