McNair Camp Welcome

Welcome Murray
State University
Graduate School Training Camp Participants!
We are so excited to participate in this year's camp and to get to know each of you.  This is a terrific opportunity to network with other McNair scholars around the country - and learn everything you can about getting yourself into a fully funded Ph.D. program!  Here you may access the handouts and PowerPoint's associated with Lynn's presentations on the Application Process and Getting the Money.  We highly encourage you to download CMU's Grad App Tracker for your usage during the application season.  We believe it to be a tremendous organizational tool.  Please keep in touch and let us know what you think.
I have fond memories of the Grad School Boot Camp through the years - initially created and hosted by Indiana University and now hosted by Murray State University.  This picture is of our 2006 CMU McNair scholars taking a break during camp and hanging out on the lake!  The majority of these scholars now have their master's degrees and several intend to continue on at some point.  Three scholars pictured are in the process of achieving their Ph.D.!  We have Dan Denomme in Chemistry at the University of Florida, Laura Daniels in Clinical Health Psychology at East Carolina University and Benjamin Machar in Political Science at Howard University. 
Email Lynn by September 1 and tell her that your ESSENTIALS are complete! 
We can't wait to hear about your succes!
