The Program

The Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program (McNair Scholars Program) is a federal TRiO program funded at 158 institutions across the United States and Puerto Rico by the U.S. Department of Education.

This program provides an enriching educational experience for first-generation college students with financial need, or members of a group that are traditionally underrepresented in graduate education and have demonstrated strong academic potential.

The Goal

The goal of the McNair Scholars Program is to increase graduate degree awards for students from underrepresented segments of society. The program provides eligible undergraduates with critical research experiences, preparation for the GRE, mentoring, professional skills, and assistance with the graduate application process.
