McNair Scholars are required to conduct an independent research project under the guidance of an experienced university faculty member from his/her discipline.  This type of work prepares the Scholar for graduate-level research.  The research project includes the following:

  • Development and completion of original research idea
  • Development of professional research paper
  • Course credit
  • $2800 research stipend
  • Room and board for those who qualify
  • Presentation of research at national conferences

We also highly encourage scholars to pursue additional research in off-campus research internships and have posted a list of paid summer research internships that is updated and expanded in the fall when programs start recruiting for their programs. So check back often!
