McNair Scholar in Art History Spring 2014


The McNair Scholars Program at The University of Texas at Arlington is pleased to announce Kristen Semento as the McNair Scholar in Art History for the Spring 2014 program entry.

The McNair Scholars Program is a federal TRIO program funded at 200 institutions across the United States and Puerto Rico by the U.S. Department of Education. It is designed to prepare undergraduate students for doctoral studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities. McNair participants are either first-generation college students with financial need, or members of a group that is traditionally underrepresented in graduate education and have demonstrated strong academic potential. The goal of the McNair Scholars Program is to increase graduate degree awards for students from underrepresented segments of society.
