McNair Scholars Program

Student Educational Opportunity

Welcome to the McNair Scholars Program

The UW 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

Initiated by Congress and Established by the U.S. Department of Education in 1986, the Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program is named for astronaut and Space Shuttle Challenger crew member, Dr. Ronald E. McNair.

The UW McNair Scholars Program is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program. McNair is one of the Federal TRIO Programs, which also include Student Support Services, Educational Opportunity Centers, Upward Bound (including Upward Bound Math/Science and Veterans Upward Bound), and Talent Search.

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.
