Welcome to the McNair Scholars Program, a federally-funded TRIO program administered by the U.S. Department of Education.  The mission of the McNair Scholars Program is to prepare talented, highly motivated UNH undergraduates for entrance to PhD programs in all fields of study. The program aims to promote and nurture the next generation of faculty, researchers, and scholars by providing academic and social support services in the form of academic year internships and summer research fellowships.


TRIO Program

Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement programs are designed to encourage high achieving underrepresented undergraduates to consider careers in college teaching as well as prepare for doctoral study. Students who participate in this program are provided with research opportunities and faculty mentors.
