Gaining Research Experience
McNair Scholars conduct a research project with the guidance of a McNair Faculty Mentor. Faculty mentors guide scholars as they develop academic and professional skills to meet the scholarly performance standards crucial to successfully completing graduate level work. Many McNair Scholars attend national conferences to present their research and are eligible for travel funds to do so. Scholars publish their research project in The McNair Journal with many going on to publish their work in scholarly journals and continuing that research in graduate school.
