TRiO McNair Scholars Program

Group of McNair Students
The McNair Scholars Program prepares carefully selected undergraduate students from low-income and/or first-generation college families, or who are members of underrepresented groups, for doctoral study and faculty careers. It is a challenging program that provides opportunities for undergraduate research and faculty mentoring along with intensive advising and assistance with the graduate school admission process.

The McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program at DePaul University is a U.S. Department of Education TRiO program supported by 65 percent federal funds and 35 percent DePaul funds.
