Interested students can apply to the McNair Scholars Program now through Nov. 1.
The McNair Scholars Program is grant-funded through the United States Department of Education TRIO programs and aims to prepare first-generation and underrepresented students for success in doctoral studies.
Scholars have the opportunity to work one-on-one with faculty mentors to design and conduct funded research projects. They also receive travel funds for conferences, presentation workshops, personal graduate school application assistance and GRE preparation.
There will be brief informational sessions about the McNair Scholars Program at 3 p.m., 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11, in room 254 in Busch Student Center. All interested students are encouraged to attend.
