The CSU TRIO McNair Scholars Program prepares talented and eligible undergraduates for doctoral studies through involvement in research, seminars, advising, preparation for the Graduate Record Examination, and other intensive scholarly activities. Students who participate in the program come from disadvantaged backgrounds, show strong academic potential in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics) disciplines, and are committed to pursuing the Ph.D. degree. The program is named after the late Dr. Ronald E. McNair an African American physicist and NASA astronaut who died in the Challenger explosion in 1986. This program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education.
