Welcome to the UALR McNair Scholars Program
The McNair Scholars Program, also referred to as the Ronald E. McNair Post Baccalaureate Achievement Program, is one of the Federal TRIO Programs governed by the United States Department of Education. These programs were designed with the purpose of providing support to students from disadvantaged backgrounds in order to be successful in the academic world.
The McNair Scholars Program works with college students possessing aspirations of obtaining doctoral degrees. At the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, 25 Elite Scholars are chosen each year to participate in our enriching Summer and/or Fall Internship Program.
The University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s Ronald E. McNair Program prepares students to compete with the best.
“They used to say that even the janitors at MIT had master’s degrees. At first I wasn’t going, but then I couldn’t run away from a challenge. I had to compete with the best.” -Dr. Ronald McNair
