McNair Scholars Program

Location/phone: SVC 2049, (813) 974-1605
Web address: http://www.sa.usf.edu/McNair

The Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Scholars Program is designed to prepare economically disadvantaged and traditionally underrepresented juniors and seniors for doctoral programs. Special emphasis is placed on the recruitment of students with majors in math, engineering, science, public health, communications, humanities, medical sciences and English. However, other disciplines such as education, social sciences and fine arts are considered. This program encourages graduate studies by providing opportunities for academically talented junior and senior-level undergraduate students to define their career goals, engage in research, develop their personal and professional skills and participate in student/faculty mentor relationships, critical to their success at the doctoral level. Graduate school application assistance is also provided, as well as GRE, GMAT, and MCAT preparation.

McNair Scholars are awarded scholarship stipends when they participate in the Summer Research Institute and during their research internship in their senior year. The Program also provides students with opportunities to attend and present academic papers at national and regional conferences. The criteria for this very competitive scholars program are as follows: 3.0 minimum cumulative GPA, declared major, a minimum of 45 earned credit hours, current enrollment at USF at the junior or senior level, United States citizenship/resident alien status and a completed Ronald McNair application with faculty recommendations.
