The McNair Fellows Program for Rising Sophomores and Rising Juniors
The McNair Scholars Program prepares talented, highly motivated UConn undergraduate students for doctoral studies in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines. As part of UConn’s TRIO programs, McNair is open to low-income, first-generation college students or those from populations underrepresented in STEM graduate fields who are seeking to pursue a Ph.D.
Students who are currently freshmen (rising sophomores) or sophomores (rising juniors) can apply for this two week residency program, which will begin immediately after the end of the spring semester. Students will gain research experience while learning about:
- STEM Ph.D. career avenues
- Undergraduate research opportunities
- The more research-intensive McNair Scholars Program
McNair Fellows reside on the Storrs campus, shadow STEM researchers, and engage in academic writing and presentation exercises.
For more information, please contact Dr. Renée Gilberti at firstname.lastname@example.org. Application materials are available now. Students at the Storrs campus and regional campuses are encouraged to apply.
