Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program
The federally-funded Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program will prepare 25 UW Oshkosh undergraduates annually for doctoral study by pairing them with faculty mentors who assist the students in designing, implementing, and completing a significant research project. The program seeks to increase the attainment of advanced degrees by students from first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented groups.
Additional services and seminars are offered to students throughout their tenure with the Ronald E.McNair program. These include research methodology, writing and oral presentation skills, academic and career development, GRE application and preparation, and graduate school site visits. In the summer following their junior year, McNair Scholars participate in an eight week, research-intensive program that leads to presentation or publication. McNair Scholars also will have the opportunity to speak with UW Oshkosh alumni who are seeking advanced degrees.
The UW Oshkosh McNair Scholars Program is 100% funded through a TRIO grant from the United States Department of Education PR/Award Number P217A120210. For 2013/2014, the UW Oshkosh McNair Scholars Program annually received $208,494 in federal funds.
