McNair Scholars Program

Welcome to the McNair Scholars Program website at Wichita State University. The mission of the McNair Scholars Program is to encourage students who are underrepresented in higher education to pursue post-baccalaureate degrees.

The Program focuses on African-American, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander students. We concentrate on providing quality services that ensure participants graduate with bachelor’s degrees from Wichita State, improve their chances of entering post-baccalaureate study and ultimately attain doctoral degrees.
