For many first-generation and low-income students, the journey to postgraduate education is often intimidating due to numerous disadvantages and obstacles, whether they be financial barriers, a lack of resources and mentors, or the fear of the unknown. The McNair Scholars Program was created to prepare undergraduate students for doctoral studies through research and other scholarly activities. It provides a foundation for research skills while improving confidence working, often for the first time, in a laboratory environment.
