The McNair Scholars Program will soon be recruiting for our 2021 cohort.  We are looking for low-income and first-generation college students and/or underrepresented students interested in getting a Ph.D.

We are looking for students who are:

  • Interested in a career that requires a Ph.D.

The McNair program helps students get into graduate school through providing a research experience, GRE training and more. 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.  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.
