McNair Research Scholars

McNair Research Scholars

The Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program was established in memory of astronaut-physicist and Challenger crewmember Ronald E. McNair. The Program is administered through Delta State University’s Office of Graduate & Continuing Studies. McNair is one of eight TRiO programs funded by the U.S. Department of Education.

  • Opportunities for research and scholarly activities
