Currently, three Scholars have received their doctoral degrees, while 12 students are enrolled in doctoral degrees including math, molecular neuroscience, education, zoology, folklore studies, clinical psychology, and wildlife sciences. Additionally, 21 Scholars have completed their master’s degrees while 16 are currently enrolled in master’s degree programs.  Ninety two students who have participated in the McNair Program have graduated with a bachelor’s degree.  Of those, 25 have completed a graduate program, and 30 are currently enrolled in graduate programs. “The McNair Scholars Program has truly been an unquestioned success,” Dr. Christopher Markwood, Provost. For those interested in the McNair Scholars Program, applications are now available online or in OM 340 and are due on October 30, 2009.
