Thank you for checking out the McNair Scholars Program here at The College of St. Scholastica, as we celebrate our 18th year.
The McNair Scholars Program is a graduate school preparatory program which began providing services nationally to students in the 1989-1990 academic year. As of September 2012 there are 137 McNair programs working with 5,419 income eligible, first-generation, and minority undergraduate students, encouraging them to consider careers in college teaching and to prepare them for doctoral study.
Programs focus on scholars who are traditionally underrepresented in graduate studies, who are motivated, and academically ready to prepare for doctoral studies. A particular focus of the McNair program is providing research opportunities for scholars. Scholars are paired with research mentors that assist them with their academic goals. Scholars are provided with in-depth information on the graduate school application process through seminars, workshops and internships, and are networked with professionals in their field through membership in those professional organizations.
