McNair Scholars Program: March 22
March 2, 2010, Volume 56, No. 24

The McNair Scholars Program at Penn is currently accepting applications from eligible sophomores for its 2010 cohort. The program identifies and prepares academically talented undergraduates interested in obtaining research PhDs who come from several groups currently underrepresented in higher education:  students from low-income backgrounds who will be the first in their family to obtain a college degree, as well as African-American, Latino/a, and Native-American students.  The program provides research training, early scholarly experiences, and preparation for the graduate school application process and doctoral study. This year, admission priority will be given to applicants majoring in one of the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics). Faculty and staff members are urged to refer potential applicants to the McNair Scholars website at www.vpul.upenn.edu/aap/mcnair for complete eligibility guidelines and application materials. The deadline for applications is March 22, 2010.
