CofC McNair Scholars

This program prepares participants for doctoral studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities. Participants are from disadvantaged backgrounds and have demonstrated strong academic potential.

Institutions work closely with participants as they complete their undergraduate requirements. Institutions encourage participants to enroll in graduate programs and then track their progress through to the successful completion of advanced degrees. The goal is to increase the attainment of Ph.D. degrees by students from underrepresented segments of society.

Mission: The mission of the College of Charleston McNair Scholars Program is to prepare its participants for doctoral studies by fostering understanding and creativity through undergraduate research endeavors. The Program is supported by a federal TRiO grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education that seeks to increase the number of Ph.D recipients from groups underrepresented in graduate education.
