McNair Scholars Program

The McNair Scholars program at UTA strives to provide experiences that prepare undergraduate students for doctoral study and the professoriate. The McNair program supports undergraduates who are low-income, first-generation college students and/or students from minority groups who are underrepresented in graduate programs. Through the research methods course and a summer research fellowship, McNair students may potentially fulfill the requirements for the Honors Senior Project course. The Honors oral competency requirement must be fulfilled through the Honors Research Symposium (HRS), held each semester.
