Augsburg’s TRIO McNair Scholars Program is recruiting students for Fall 2018 admission. Eligible applicants will be at Junior status by the end of Spring 2019 and available to conduct full-time research Summer 2019. We are particularly looking for students in STEM fields that are interested in pursuing doctoral degrees, but we will consider all majors EXCEPT most professional fields (including business, pre-law, pre-health).
The TRIO McNair Scholars Program works with students who are members of groups underrepresented in graduate education and who exhibit strong academic potential. The goal of the program is to prepare Scholars for graduate study through academics, involvement in undergraduate research and other scholarly activities. McNair provides coursework, workshops and advising in preparation for doctoral study. The program also assists with securing admission to and financial assistance for enrollment in graduate programs. Students will acquire the research skills necessary to succeed in graduate school through a paid research internship ($4000) with an Augsburg faculty member during the Summer of 2019.
The McNair Scholars Program is a federal TRIO grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Therefore, to be eligible, students must be first-generation (neither parent graduated from a four-year college) AND low-income AND/OR may be persons from groups underrepresented in graduate education. The Department of Education defines these groups as African-American, American Indian, Alaskan Native, and Hispanic/Latino. Additionally, applicants must be either U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents and maintain at last a 2.8 cumulative GPA (3.0+ preferred).
If you are interested in learning more about the McNair Scholars Program, please contact Lara Crombie, Program Assistant, email@example.com. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions about the program or if you’re unsure whether or not you qualify.
