The McNair Scholars program is currently accepting applications for the 2016-17 Academic Year!
The McNair Scholars Program is highly competitive and serves a maximum of twenty-five students at any given time. New applicants are considered only once current scholars graduate from the university. Given the limited availability of student spots every year, meeting the eligibility requirements does not guarantee admission into the McNair cohort. Letters of recommendation, resumes, and personal statements are assessed by the program admissions committee to identify students who might benefit the most from our program offerings, who may have a strong commitment to undergraduate research, and whose goal is to complete an academic doctorate.
In addition, students must be willing to participate in the McNair Scholars Summer Research Institute, at least once, before graduation; present their research projects in at least two conferences (McNair or Academic conferences only); and have a commitment to participate in all McNair seminars, workshops, and activities until graduation.
