McNair Scholars Program - Deadline: Nov 16th
Are you a current sophomore, junior or senior graduating in December 2013 or later? Do you want to get involved in undergraduate research? Are you looking to go to graduate school and earn a doctoral degree? Need scholarship money? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then the McNair Scholars Program is right for you!
The Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program is a federally funded program mandated by Congress. The goal of the program is to increase the number of students in doctoral degree programs who are low-income and first-generation undergraduates or students who come from groups underrepresented in graduate education, particularly African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Natives. The McNair Scholars Program will serve 25 students each year. An integral component of the program is the Summer Research Institute (SRI) Internship at UT Austin. Each summer, up to 13 students will be selected for this ten-week paid internship. Program participants must be committed to enrolling in graduate programs. The program will track progress towards the successful completion of a doctoral degree.
Benefits of being a McNair Scholar:
McNair also offers scholarships of up to $2,000 per year for all active participants in the program.
Applications for McNair are currently being accepted and the deadline to submit is November 16th by 5 PM.
