The McNair Scholars Program at SNU assists SNU undergraduates who are first-generation students meeting certain income criteria and others from groups under represented in graduate studies to build the skills and confidence required to pursue a doctoral degree. This competitive program targets student scholars who demonstrate sound academic performance, strong potential for success in graduate school, and the intent to pursue a career in which adoctorate is required.
