The mission of the Kent State University McNair Scholars Program is to be a national leader in developing scholars for doctoral study by providing transformative research experiences, exceptional faculty mentorship, and intentional professional and personal development.

The Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program commonly referred to as The McNair Scholars Program prepares undergraduate students who are first-generation, from designated income or underrepresented groups in graduate schools, for doctoral study. McNair Scholars are engaged in scholarly research, mentored by faculty, and are exposed to varied academic and cultural experiences.
