McNair Scholars

The Rock, The River, The Tree: TRIO Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement program, known at USD as the McNair Scholars Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Education and the University of San Diego. The McNair Scholars Program serves high-achieving USD undergraduates who are committed to pursuing a PhD or graduate degree. Our program seeks to empower the next generation of scholastic leaders by providing a holistic developmental experience.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Applicants who meet the requirements will be notified of their admission contingent on availability. Eligibility for the program alone does not guarantee admission. Students are encouraged to apply early.

We are currently accepting proposals for the 2018 McNair Scholars Summer Research Program.
