Ronald E.McNair

The SDSU McNair Scholars Program is an innovative program that prepares talented students in the pursuit of doctoral study and careers in higher education. Twenty-five scholars are selected to receive stipends to conduct research with university faculty mentors, write research papers and present their work to professors and peers at regional and national conferences.

The program has completed 15 summer research programs and 23 alumni have completed doctoral programs. Five of our alumni are currently in faculty positions and 10 are conducting post-doctoral research. Four of our alumni have completed M.D.s, two have completed J.D.s, one has completed a PharmD, one has completed a D.P.T. (doctorate in Physical Therapy), and one has completed an Ed.D. Forty scholars are currently enrolled in doctoral programs.
