The database serves as a valuable recruitment tool by allowing Graduate School deans and fellowship program directors to directly contact a cohort of highly talented and motivated students.
Advantages of Recruiting McNair Scholars
By manipulating the directory by the GRE codes or by state, graduate programs can directly recruit students interested in a particular area of study or from a particular region. By sorting on areas of interest or fields of study, relevant data can be batched and disseminated in a manageable format to department chairs and directors to share with faculty.Download the Ronald E.

The password is being distributed to accredited post-secondary institutions of higher education and their graduate programs though the Council of Graduate Schools. If you require the password, please contact email@example.com.
The above-mentioned password will allow you to access the file in a “read-only” format. You do not need a second password to access the file in this way. Once you have opened the file as “read-only,” save it to a secured directory or folder on your desktop by using the “Save As” function under the “File” tab in Excel. Data in the “read-only” version of the directory can be manipulated. However, no changes can be saved to the original document.
COE asks that the Directory be used appropriately and specifically. Please refrain from sending out mass messages to students. The Directory should be used as a targeted recruitment tool for graduate programs that match students’ fields of interest as specified in the database. Reports of abuse will result in future restriction to the McNair Scholars Directory.
