Ronald E. McNair post-baccalaureate achievement program
McNair is one of seven programs, under the federal TRIO Programs. TRIO is funded by the Department of Education and is targeted to serve and assist low-income individuals, first-generation college students, and individuals with disabilities to progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to post-baccalaureate programs. The McNair program, named for the late astronaut, Ronald Ervin McNair, who died in the 1986 space shuttle Challenger explosion, provides students with research opportunities, faculty mentors and opportunities to publish and or present research findings, and preparation for graduate school.
Currently ASU does not have a TRIO funded McNair Program; however, ASU recognizes McNair Scholars as students coming from some of the most competitive undergraduate programs in the country to graduate school at Arizona State University.
