The Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program (McNair Program) is a national program designed to prepare participants for doctoral studies through involvement in research and scholarly activities. McNair Program staff work closely with students in completing their undergraduate requirements, and encouraging and supporting their entrance into graduate programs. The goal of McNair is to increase the attainment of Ph.D. degrees by students from underrepresented segments of society. NMU's McNair Program has been in existence since 2009 and so far has served 69 students. 60% of McNair graduates have enrolled in graduate degree programs. 73% of those students have received partial funding and 54% have received full funding for their graduate education.

Within these pages are the products of McNair Scholars' summer research internship. McNair Scholars are undergraduate students who work under the guidance of a faculty research mentor on an original research project. At the conclusion of the research internship, scholars are encouraged to travel to research and professional conferences to present their research.
