Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program

The Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program prepares undergraduates for doctoral study (PhD tracks) through involvement in research and scholarly activities. The purpose of the McNair Scholars Program is to assist in the academic and professional development of undergraduates whose goals are to teach and research at the college level. In order to help students achieve those goals, the program sponsors and supports undergraduate experiences that lay the foundation for a successful graduate school experience. By fostering mentoring relationships, promoting undergraduate research, assisting with GRE preparation, and enabling students to attend and present at conferences, we aim to produce highly competitive graduate school applicants who have the skills and experiences necessary to succeed in their programs.

If you want similar assistance applying to other graduate programs, but are not intending to pursue a PhD (i.e. your goal is for Master’s programs or Professional graduate degree programs such as medical or law school), please reach out to us through the Early Identification Program.
