McNair Scholar Program Office, Foust 148
​The McNair program is funded by the U.S. Department of Education and named in honor of Dr. Ronald E. McNair who perished on the Space Shuttle Challenger in 1986, we work with low income, first generation college students and underrepresented students who want to get their Ph.D. We are producing new Ph.D.’s every year.  We formally recruit scholars every fall but we invite you to reach out to us at any time.  We want to meet you, hear your story and help you find an educational and career path that will best fit your needs and interests.  If you want to get your Ph.D. (possibly for free!) and have the opportunity to do cool research, we strongly encourage you to click here to fill out a brief interest survey telling us more about yourself.    ​
