The federally funded TRIO McNair Scholars program seeks to increase doctoral program application, matriculation, and degree attainment by underrepresented and first-generation college students.
The U of M McNair program is open to all Twin Cities students in all colleges and majors, U of M coordinate campuses (Crookston, Duluth, Morris, Rochester), and Minnesota colleges and universities that do not have their own McNair program: Carleton College, Hamline University, Macalester College, Metropolitan State University, Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, St. Catherine University, St. John’s University, and University of St. Thomas.
Through this summer experience and academic year programming, McNair Scholars develop higher-level academic and research skills necessary to gain admission to and successfully complete graduate study.
