Ronald E. McNair Scholars and Research Opportunity Scholars

The McNair Scholars Program and the Research Opportunity Program prepare promising first-generation and low income and/or underrepresented students for graduate school with the eventual goal of earning a doctorate. The McNair Program is federally funded and ROP is state funded, with all scholars participating in the same two-year, academically rigorous preparation including the completion of a faculty-mentored research project. Scholars from McNair/ROP programs have earned graduate degrees in more than 80 universities nationwide and that number continues to grow each year.
