Nicole Nemeth Selected as an EWU McNair Scholar and Awarded Summer Research Internship

Congratulations to new McNair Scholar Nicole Nemeth! Nicole was selected by the McNair Scholars’ selection committee on the basis of her passion for research, commitment to attaining a PhD, and overall potential for success in graduate school.

The federally-funded TRIO Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program at EWU selects motivated and talented juniors and seniors who are first-generation and low-income college students, and/or from groups underrepresented at the doctoral level to introduce them to academic research and provide them with effective strategies for getting into and graduating from PhD programs.

Nicole Nemeth is a first-generation sophomore at Eastern Washington University, pursuing a major in nursing and a minor in psychology. She was accepted as a McNair Scholar in winter of 2023 and is working towards a specialization in nurse anesthesia. For her 2024 McNair Summer Research Internship, Nicole will conduct her own investigation. Outside of her academic pursuits, Nicole finds joy in drawing and writing, and would like to publish her own books in the future. She will conduct her 2024 McNair Summer Research Internship alongside her EWU faculty research mentor, Dr. Donna Bachand, RN.

We look forward to accompanying Nicole as her research unfolds!
