GRADUATE STUDENT MENTORS

About the McNair Scholars Program
The McNair Scholars Program prepares qualified undergraduates for entrance into a PhD program in all fields of study. The goals of the program are to increase the number of first-generation, low-income and/or underrepresented students in PhD programs, and ultimately, to diversify the faculty in colleges and universities across the country.

The UCSB McNair Scholars Program provides undergraduates with opportunities to participate in research activities during the academic year and summer. McNair Scholars attend courses, seminars and workshops on topics related to graduate school preparation; complete a research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor; and have the opportunity to present their research at local, regional and national conferences. For more information about the program visit: http://mcnair.ucsb.edu/

Three McNair Scholars Program Graduate Mentors will serve as role models and advisors to undergraduate participants; assist in the production of the McNair newsletter, brochures, and journal; organize events and training sessions; participate and occasionally facilitate quarterly seminars, provide feedback for scholarly and undergraduate research assignments and other projects as needed.
