The WVU McNair Scholars Program is looking for highly motivated, disciplined and hardworking college students with demonstrated financial needs, who are either first generation (students whose parents don't have a 4-year college degree) or a member of an underrepresented group i.e. African American, Hispanic American, Native American, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islanders. Eligible students must be committed to enroll in and complete graduate study, specifically the doctorate (i.e. Ph.D., Ed.D.).
The program accepts 25 students including returning students each year. New students participate in our 6 week summer research internship. Returning students have the opportunity to complete their research during the academic year.
