One Month Left- Don't Miss Out on Applying to be a McNair Scholar

Is a Ph.D. in your future? We can help you!

The McNair Scholars office is currently looking for a few new motivated members to join our active group of hardworking, dedicated scholars for the winter 2013 semester. If you are a first generation and low-income student or a student typically under-represented in graduate school education who is interested in pursuing a Ph.D., we want to help you reach your goals!

The McNair Scholars office is looking for energetic and motivated students who will have completed 40 credits by the end of the fall semester, have at least a 3.0 GPA and have a desire to pursue a Ph.D. Being a part of the McNair program allows students to work closely with the McNair staff to receive academic and financial advising, attend graduate school and GRE prep workshops, and work closely with a faculty mentor to complete summer research. Over the last three years, dozens of our students have participated in graduate school trips and conference opportunities- all paid for by the McNair office! These opportunities have helped open the door for 11 of our students to gain acceptance and receive funding to graduate schools throughout the country. In addition to these amazing opportunities and getting a head start on your graduate school education, you can also earn up to $2,800 in a summer research stipend.

To learn more about how you can become a part of this exciting and challenging program at NMU, please stop by the McNair office at 2804 West Science or call 227-2590 to speak with a McNair staff member. You can also email the program at mcnair@nmu.edu , visit our website (www.nmu.edu/mcnair) or check out our NMU McNair Scholars Facebook page. Applications are available at the McNair office and online and are due by November 5, 2012.
