McNair Scholars Program

  • "Whether or not you reach your goals in life depends entirely on how you prepare for them and how badly you want them. You’re eagles! Stretch your wings and fly to the sky!"- Ronald E. McNair, Ph.D.


The mission of the McNair Scholars Program is to prepare talented, highly motivated UConn undergraduate students for Ph.D. studies in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines.
