McNair Scholars Soar at 25th Annual SAEOPP Conference

The scholars enjoyed an exciting four days in Atlanta where they were given the opportunity to meet a number of different Scholars from around the US, and network with representatives from various graduate schools including Harvard, John Hopkins University, and Vanderbilt University.

Several of our scholars were given the opportunity to present their current research during the SAEOPP Poster Presentation Session. Our very own Alicia Cumberlander won first place! (Pictured; top far right).

Though they were a bit homesick by the last day, the scholars were excited, motivated, and eager to continue their pursuit of a doctoral degree armed with the knowledge they gained through a number of workshops, forums, and keynote speakers.
