Six UMD Students Accepted into McNair Scholars Program

DULUTH, MN – Six University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) students have been accepted into the McNair Scholars Program for fall 2013. The McNair Scholars Program prepares talented, highly motivated undergraduate students for doctoral studies in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines.

The UMD students for fall 2013 are:

McNair is open to low-income, first-generation college students or those from populations underrepresented in STEM graduate fields who are seeking to pursue a Ph.D.

McNair Scholars are paired with faculty mentors for academic enrichment, research, and internships. UMD faculty serve as student mentors. Students also participate in workshops, seminars, and conferences designed to help them secure admission to doctoral programs and obtain financial resources for graduate study.

The McNair Scholars Program is a federal TRIO program funded at 177 institutions across the United States and Puerto Rico by the U.S. Department of Education. The goal of the McNair Scholars Program is to increase graduate degree awards for students from underrepresented segments of society.
