McNair Scholars Group

We enjoyed having the McNair Scholars Group from Southern Mississippi University visit to learn about graduate education at Auburn University.

“The McNair Scholars Program is a federal TRIO program funded at 151¬†institutions across the United States and Puerto Rico by the U.S. Department of Education. It is designed to prepare undergraduate students for doctoral studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities. McNair participants are either first-generation college students with financial need, or members of a group that is traditionally underrepresented in graduate education and have demonstrated strong academic potential. The goal of the McNair Scholars Program is to increase graduate degree awards for students from underrepresented segments of society.” – McNair Scholars Program website
