The Ronald E. McNair Program works with motivated and talented undergraduates who want to pursue PhDs. Through academic seminars, the program introduces PSU juniors and seniors, who are first-generation and low-income, and/or members of under-represented groups, to academic research and to effective strategies for getting into and graduating from PhD programs. Scholars work closely with faculty mentors on original research during summer internships.
