Announcing 2020 McNair Summer Researchers

The McNair Scholars Program helps students reach their graduate school goals by offering a unique research experience during their undergraduate degree. Participating students spend an average of 400 hours exploring their topics, developing a thesis, collecting and reviewing data, and preparing a formal presentation of their findings. Research provides the opportunity to develop a mentoring relationship by working one-on-one with a faculty member; gaining extensive skills and knowledge in a discipline; exposure to methodological techniques; writing and public speaking practice by submitting papers to professional conferences and journals; and attaining strong letters of recommendation.
