McNair Scholars Program

Bruce Stracener, an undergraduate student in the Systems Engineering Department, has been accepted into the McNair Scholars Program, which is 100% federally funded. Each year selected Scholars participate in an Internship designed to increase their knowledge of in-depth research, graduate school, and Ph.D programs. This research opportunity introduces students to the techniques utilized in major research, a vital component of many post graduate programs. However, a unique and exciting aspect of the McNair Program is the Mentorship offered each participant. Upon completion of program requirements, each scholar is eligible to receive stipends totaling $2800 during their internship. Bruce will conduct research under the mentorship of Dr. Nidhal Bouaynaya.
