Please use the form below to nominate a student or a faculty member to the McNair Program. Nominee information is required, but nominator fields are optional – in other words, nominations can be anonymous, if you prefer. McNair Scholars are exemplary undergraduate students from first generation, low income, and underrepresented backgrounds who are interested in earning a PhD or joint PhD in the future. The McNair staff will check student eligibility upon receiving nominations, so do not worry about having to check this yourself.

Nominations for faculty mentors and faculty affiliates are also encouraged. Faculty mentors supervise student research projects and assist students with the graduate school admissions process alongside McNair Staff. Faculty Affiliates are faculty members from each of the following areas – Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, Behavioral Sciences, and the Humanities – who are interested in serving as advocates for the McNair program in their respective departments, assessing and evaluating the rigor of the McNair program’s research requirements, and assisting in the development of scholarly and educational activities to help prepare participants for doctoral study. Self-nominations are accepted.
