McNair Scholars Recommendation
The McNair Scholars Program prepares students of first-generation and low-income backgrounds and/or students from underrepresented groups for graduate study. Being a McNair scholar requires a deep commitment as participants are expected to participate in workshops and seminars, attend lectures, study for the GRE, complete a faculty-mentored research internship, and present at conferences. Your assessment of the applicant’s character and promise as a scholar will assist the McNair Program in selecting the most qualified and capable applicants. Please fill out the summary evaluation and include a short statement, providing examples as to why this student would or would not make an outstanding McNair scholar.
