McNair Scholars Program

About McNair Scholars Program

The McNair Scholars Program is a federal TRIO program funded at 151 institutions across the United States which is designed to prepare undergraduate students for doctoral studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities. McNair participants are either first-generation college students with financial need, or members of a group that is traditionally underrepresented in graduate education.
