One of the highlights of your career as a Truman McNair Scholar is presenting the results of your research in a public forum at national, regional, and local conferences.
Every August, McNair Scholars will present findings from summer research and information about their research experiences at the Summer Research Symposium, which is held on the first Saturday of the academic year.

Truman McNair Scholars have presented at the National McNair Conference in Delavan, Wisconsin, the Annual Pennsylvania State University McNair Conference, the California McNair Scholars’ Conference at the University of California-Berkeley, The University of Puerto Rico McNair Scholars’ Conference, the University of Maryland National Research Conference for McNair Scholars and Undergraduate Students, and the MKN McNair Heartland Research Conference.
