The Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program is a federal TRIO program funded at 151 institutions across the United States and Puerto Rico. Each year in November, The University of Alabama invites McNair Scholars to visit our campus for a day to learn more about graduate programs. Scholars interact with current graduate students, tour the campus and the facilities, and meet with faculty members in their prospective departments. This year, students traveled from Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri, Texas, and West Virginia to participate in the day’s activities.
