Research Projects

Emily SprengelmeyerThe McNair Scholars office is proud to highlight the exceptional research our students are doing with their faculty mentors.

Each summer, 15 McNair scholars undertake a major research project under the guidance of an NMU Faculty mentor. Their research culminates in the creation of a research paper and poster presentation, which is presented at the NMU Annual Celebration of Student Research, Creative Works, and Academic Service Learning. Many scholars travel to present their research at other conferences as well, and go on to have their work published.

Interested in previous research that has taken place? Take a few moments to check out the exciting and challenging research projects that took place across NMU’s campus by McNair scholars during the last few summers.
