The mission of the Texas A&M University-Kingsville McNair Scholars Program is to prepare and increase the number of juniors and seniors in the fields of Math, Sciences and Engineering to pursue doctoral studies. The program is named after the late Dr. Ronald E. McNair and is one of the 156 McNair programs sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education under a TRIO grant.
McNair scholars are a talented and unique group of students that, through their participation in the program, receive advising, academic skills and enhancement opportunities, faculty mentorship, research experiences, counseling, tutoring and other scholarly activities in preparation for their enrollment in graduate school.
Students who participate in the program come from disadvantaged backgrounds, show strong academic potential, and are committed to pursuing a doctoral degree. Texas A&M University-Kingsville works closely with the students through their undergraduate requirements, encourage their entrance into graduate programs, and tracks their progress to successful completion of advanced degrees.
