The Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement program is a U.S. Department of Education TRiO program that awards grants to institutions of higher education to prepare students for graduate studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities.
The goal of the McNair Program is to increase the attainment of doctoral and other terminal degrees by participants who are either first-generation college students with financial need or members of a group traditionally underrepresented in graduate education that demonstrate strong academic potential.
Institutions work closely with participants through their undergraduate requirements, encourage their entrance into graduate programs, and track their progress to the successful completion of advanced degrees.
McNair Scholars are currently completing graduate degrees at over 150 institutions across the United States and Puerto Rico.
Enrollment is now open and applications are due by Monday, Dec. 6, 2021! Please fill out an online application or request a paper copy to drop off in Building B, Room141.
