The Southern Methodist University Mustang McNair Scholars Program
is committed to increasing and diversifying the number of undergraduates who are members of underrepresented groups to pursue doctoral degrees.
The SMU McNair Project will provide academic and other support services to prepare low-income, first-generation college students, and students from groups underrepresented in graduate education for doctoral study. Specifically, the new McNair Project of SMU will provide opportunities for research or other scholarly activities,
summer internships, seminars, tutoring, and academic counseling to prepare students for doctoral studies including assistance to students in securing admission to, and financial assistance for, graduate programs. The SMU McNair Project will also provide education or counseling services designed to improve the financial and economic literacy of students, including financial planning for postsecondary education, mentoring programs involving faculty members and exposure to cultural events and academic programs not usually available to disadvantaged students.
