The McNair Scholars Journal is the culmination of intensive research and scholarship conducted by GVSU McNair scholars and their faculty mentors at Grand Valley State University through our Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program.

The Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement program’s goal is to increase the number of minoritized students in PhD programs and careers across the country. That is first generation students with significant financial need (Pell eligible), or members of racial and ethnic groups that are traditionally underrepresented in careers that require Ph.Ds. The program accepts students from all disciplines.

More information about the GVSU McNair Scholars program can be found at www.gvsu.edu/ours/mcnair.
