The McNair Scholars Program is a federally-funded TRIO program that provides academic and social support to qualifying Truman students in preparation for graduate study toward doctoral degrees.

During their time in the program, McNair Scholars complete an original research, scholarly, and/or creative activity project; present their work at regional and national conferences; and prepare for successful and well-funded graduate studies following their time at Truman.
