How can you be involved as a mentor?

Faculty participation is at the core of the success of the McNair Program. We invite faculty to apply to become faculty mentors. Mentoring is a great opportunity to guide and support an undergraduate student who has aspirations to pursue a doctoral degree.

As a mentor, you will be paired with one student in your field of study. You will help your mentee develop and complete a research project and prepare the findings for submission to scholarly journals. In addition, you will introduce your students to such scholarly activities as conferences and faculty seminars and symposiums and provide him or her with information about the graduate school experience and application process. Stipends are available during the research phase of program participation.
