Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program
The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is one of only 187 institutions nation-wide to have the privilege of stewarding the Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program. A federally-funded TRIO Program, McNair Programs assist bright, highly motivated undergraduates from traditionally disadvantaged backgrounds acquire the skills they need to get into and succeed in graduate school. This includes seminars and workshops on topics related to research, the graduate application process, financial assistance, tutoring and graduate school visits. The cornerstone of the McNair Program is the paid summer research internship, during which the scholar conducts a faculty-mentored research project. All scholars must present their research at the annual McNair Scholars Showcase and are given the opportunity to travel to present at national conferences.
