The University of Northern Colorado McNair Scholars Program is a federally funded TRIO program designed to prepare high-achieving students from first-generation/low-income and/or underrepresented populations for graduate studies. The ultimate goal is to provide students the experience and support necessary to complete doctoral degrees in their chosen disciplines. Components of the program include a one-year research seminar, during which students partner with faculty mentors and complete independent research projects for presentation and publication, and a semester-long senior seminar, designed to assist students in applying to graduate programs. By linking academic excellence and social diversity, the UNC McNair Scholars Program seeks to transform personal and academic goals into a successful future.
