What is the TRIO Ronald E. McNair Scholar Program?
The Ronald E. McNair Scholar Program at EWU selects motivated and talented juniors and seniors who are first-generation and low-income college students, or from groups underrepresented at the doctoral level to introduce them to academic research and effective strategies for getting into and graduating from PhD programs.
Operating on a cohort model, the program provides services to prepare undergraduates for success as graduate students, professors, and professional researchers. McNair services include classes, workshops and seminars, advising, tutoring, faculty mentoring, paid summer research internships, academic conferences and a McNair staff dedicated to participant academic success.
