The Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program prepares eligible students for graduate school. During the academic year, students attend monthly seminars, meet visiting scholars, and participate in student and professional conferences. As well, the McNair Director is available to provide specialized academic advising, admissions and financial aid application assistance. During the summer, McNair students may apply to participate in SOAR, a paid research internship which provides an in-depth research experience, working one-on-one with a faculty mentor, and the opportunity to network with other undergraduates from across the nation.

To be eligible for the McNair Program, participants must be low-income students whose parents do not have an undergraduate degree or African-American, Hispanic, or Native American.
