About the Program

Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program

The McNair Scholars Program is a federal TRIO program funded at 151 institutions across the United States and Puerto Rico by the U.S. Department of Education. It is designed to prepare undergraduate students for doctoral studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities. McNair participants are either first-generation college students with financial need, or members of a group that is traditionally underrepresented in graduate education and have demonstrated strong academic potential. The goal of the McNair Scholars Program is to increase graduate degree awards for students from underrepresented segments of society.

The Stan State McNair Program was founded in 2017.

The McNair @ Stan State works closely with the University Honors Program to help McNair Scholars design, complete, publish, and present their faculty-mentored research projects and create a community that celebrates, supports, and encourages the joyful pursuit of academic goals.

This Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program is federally funded through the U.S. Department of Education. (PR/Award:P217A170182)
