The McNair Scholars Program The McNair Scholars Program at MSU serves the needs of 25 undergraduate students annually who are either first-generation/low-income or minorities traditionally underrepresented (e.g. Native American, Latino, Alaskan Native, and African American) in graduate school. Eligible scholars are selected who have demonstrated strong academic potential and are committed to attending graduate school and pursuing a doctoral degree. A particular focus of the MSU McNair program is providing research/project opportunities and financial support for summer research projects for each student who is paired with a faculty mentor.
