About McNair Scholars Program

McNair Scholars participate in the program during the final two years of their bachelor’s degree program at Boise State. The 21-month program progression guides scholars through an integrated set of program activities, opportunities and seminars designed to facilitate their entry into graduate programs following their graduation.

Boise State McNair Scholars enroll in for-credit McNair Seminars each semester of program participation. The seminars are designed to cultivate scholarly skills and dispositions, provide exposure to research and academic professions, demystify the graduate school experience, and facilitate a strong graduate application package.

The Boise State McNair Scholars Program is a federal TRIO program funded by a $278,555 grant administered by the US Department of Education. The program is housed in the College of Education’s Center for Multicultural and Education Opportunities at Boise State University.
