McNair Scholars Program

The purpose of the MU McNair Scholars Program is to prepare eligible MU juniors and seniors for doctoral study. The program thus provides various services, resources and activities designed to assist scholars in gaining the skills and tools needed to successfully apply, pursue and complete a graduate degree.

One of the most exciting aspects of the program is the opportunity for participants to conduct independent research under the guidance of a faculty mentor. McNair scholars also participate in GRE preparation seminars; receive support through the graduate school application process; obtain information on securing fellowships and graduate assistantships; and engage in other scholarly activities designed to facilitate a smooth transition into graduate-level work leading to the PhD.
