Whether or not you reach your goals in life depends entirely on how well you prepare for them and how badly you want them. You’re eagles! Stretch your wings and fly to the sky. ~Ronald McNair
The Baylor McNair Scholars Program aims to prepare low-income, first generation and other underrepresented students in acquiring the knowledge, skills and capacities necessary to successfully navigate a path to a Ph.D. program following graduation from Baylor. The program prepares students for the rigors of Ph.D. studies through immersion in research and a variety of scholarly activities. Students who join the McNair Program join a community of peers that have been selected from a pool of eligible applicants.
Students participating in Interest Sessions will have opportunities to receive coaching concerning graduate school preparation, research presentation, graduate school funding, and research opportunities via Program staff and campus referrals.
