UT ECE junior Mark Anthony Coleman has been selected as one of 25 to participate in The Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program at The University of Texas at Austin. This federally funded program’s goal 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 and Hispanic/Latino students.

Mr. Coleman, a junior and former participant of The ECE Move Forward Program, has plans to pursue a doctorate in electrical and computer engineering. As a McNair Scholar, Mr. Coleman will receive faculty mentoring, summer internship, and research opportunities to help him progress towards the successful completion of a doctoral degree.
