McNair Scholars Resources

The McNair Scholars Program offers the resources and tools you will need to excel in academic research, find financial assistance and prepare for post-baccalaureate education.

Reference Library

McNair Reference Library materials are located in the McNair computer lab and are available only to UT Arlington McNair Scholars. Materials include publications on academic performance, research methods, scholarly writing, GRE or GMAT preparation, the nature of graduate study, applying to graduate school, preparing for and finding an academic position and more. Although most books may be checked out, some reference books may only be used on site.

Borrowers are responsible for any damaged or lost books.

Student Computer Lab

The McNair Scholars Program has a small computer lab (containing three PCs) available to Scholars to check e-mail, work on class assignments, practice for the GRE, write summer research papers and explore graduate programs and fellowships. We ask that students limit their daily printouts to 12 double sided pages.

Scholars in good standing (active program participants) can also borrow one of two program laptops for academic use. During the fall and spring semesters, the borrowing period is seven days for no more than four weeks (with one full week between borrowing periods) unless scholars receive special permission from the assistant director.

Due to increased demand during the summer internship, the borrowing period is limited to four days between July 1 and Aug. 15. Prompt return of the laptop is considered in future lending decisions. We suggest that students put their name on a waiting list if they anticipate the need to use a McNair laptop.
