Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program

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 (find more information on the McNair Program).

Georgia Southern University is honored to host one of these programs on its Statesboro campus.  If you are interested in applying to this program please fill out the application forms linked below:
