We recruit highly qualified undergraduate students and provide academic and social support with the goal of removing barriers from their pursuit of graduate degrees. Truman McNair prepares students for research doctorate programs at institutions motivated to ensure their success.
Our work is funded by the US Department of Education and Truman State University. We enable McNair scholars to achieve these objectives:
- complete research and scholarly activities each academic year,
- enroll in graduate school immediately following graduation from Truman,
- remain in graduate school for a second year, and
- attain a research doctorate within 10 years of graduating from Truman.
