The prestigious program prepares undergraduate students for the pursuit of a doctoral degree and provides a summer research stipend of up to $2,800 per student.
The McNair Scholars Program is one of eight TRiO programs funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The program supports undergraduate students across the university who come from low-income, first-generation and underrepresented backgrounds. Eligible participants plan to pursue doctoral degrees.
Each student is paired with a faculty mentor in his or her respective college with similar research interests. The student and mentor work together throughout the year so the student can gain research experience and develop academic skills and strategies to prepare them for success in higher education.
The Spring 2018 cohort includes the following scholars:

“We are excited to have such a great inaugural group of McNair Scholars,” said Wendolyn Stevens, program director. “The Scholars have already started identifying and committed research for this summer. We have confirmations for internships at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland; University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi; and at the Coastal Marine Education and Research Academy in Clearwater, Florida. I am looking forward to see the results of their Summer Research Experiences.”
