Welcome to the McNair Scholars Program at UW


The McNair Scholars Program prepares undergraduate students from groups traditionally underrepresented in graduate education for success in doctoral degree programs.

 

About the Ronald E. McNair Program

Established in 1986 by the U.S. Department of Education, the Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program is named for astronaut and Challenger space shuttle crew member Ronald McNair.

The UW McNair Scholars Program, initiated by the U.S. Congress, is funded by the U.S. Department of Education Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program as part of the Federal TRIO Programs which includes the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, Educational Opportunity Centers, Upward Bound, Talent Search and Veteran's Upward Bound.

UW's McNair Scholars Program encourages students to pursue graduate studies by providing opportunities to define goals, engage in research, and develop the skills and student/faculty mentor relationships critical to success at the doctoral level.

The McNair Scholars Program prepares eligible undergraduates for graduate study at the doctoral level. Twelve to sixteen new McNair Scholars are selected each year to participate in both academic and summer activities.
