UNL McNair Scholars Program. Named for astronaut and Challenger space shuttle crew member, Ronald McNair, the McNair Scholars Program is a unique program that is designed to help first-generation students and students of a group underrepresented in graduate education gain experience with research and preparation for graduate school. McNair Scholars are mentored by UNL’s top faculty, receive money to engage in research, travel to present at a national conference, and gain the experiences needed to gain admission to a Ph.D. program. If you are a sophomore or junior student who is interested in research and going to graduate school, you should consider applying to become a McNair Scholar. The deadline to apply is April 1, and the online application makes it easy to apply. For more information, you can visit the UNL McNair Scholars Program website, and I have brochures available in my office.
