Are you interested in being nominated for the UMBC McNair Scholars Program?
The program focuses on the preparation of undergraduate students (who qualify as either low-income/first-generation college students or members of groups underrepresented in graduate education) to pursue doctoral degrees.
The program offers a number of benefits, such as summer and academic year research funding, assistance connecting with faculty research mentors, hands-on guidance and navigation through the graduate school application process, first-hand exposure to individuals who have earned Ph.D.'s in their field of study, and the opportunity to attend research conferences (fully funded).
If you are interested in being nominated, please contact the American Studies Department Chair, Tamara Bhalla (email@example.com) ASAP.
