TRiO | McNair Scholars Program

The Ronald E. McNair Post Baccalaureate Achievement Program (McNair Scholars Program) is a federally funded TRiO program designed to provide 25 undergraduate students the support they need to advance into doctoral programs in their chosen field of study. In addition to facilitating engagement in research and other scholarly activities, the program assists McNair Scholars in building their repertoire of knowledge and skills needed to interpret and access the professional graduate education culture.

McNair Scholars are either first-generation college students with financial need, or members of a group traditionally underrepresented in graduate education and have demonstrated strong academic potential. The goal of the McNair Scholars Program is to present graduate school as a real possibility for these students, thus increasing Ph.D.s awarded to students from underrepresented segments of society.
