UW Oshkosh McNair Scholars Program

About UW Oshkosh McNair Scholars Program

The McNair Scholars Program is a federal program designed to promote equity through assisting bright, highly motivated students from traditionally disadvantaged backgrounds through the financial, bureaucratic, and academic challenges of the educational system. A significant portion of McNair funds go towards providing opportunities for scholars to make graduate school visits and present at national conferences, where they can network and build relationships with other scholars. Additionally, McNair scholars receive help preparing for the GRE, and many of the fees associated with taking the GRE exam and applying to graduate schools are either waived or paid for by the Program.
