The federally funded TRIO McNair Scholars program seeks to increase doctoral program application, matriculation, and degree attainment by underrepresented and first-generation college students. Read more about our history, outcomes, and future.
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.
*Scholars may be counted more than once, i.e. some earned masters and went on to earn doctorate.
McNair Scholars is a TRIO program funded by the United States Department of Education with support from the University of Minnesota College of Education and Human Development, the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and the Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Equity.
