Hello, Professor You.
You've worked hard to get where you are. You're the first from your low-income family to go to college. Or you're from an ethnic or racial group that doesn't usually go for an academic career. But now you're here, and you can go so much further. Take the next step toward your future by becoming a McNair Scholar.
The opportunities you’ll have through the elite McNair Scholars Program will open doors for you all over campus—and the nation. You’ll learn how to prepare for graduate school. You’ll work with a faculty mentor to prepare a research project, and you’ll present your research at professional conferences. Oh, and did we mention the $3,500 stipend?
You might have what it takes. Whether you're interested in physics, history, criminal justice, or nearly any other field imaginable, let us show you the benefits of an academic career.
