In order to apply for the McNair Program, you must meet the following eligibility criteria, set by the Department of Education. Because this is a federally funded program, these are strict requirements.
To be eligible, you:
1Post-baccalaureate students and students who already have one bachelor degree are not eligible for the program.
2Students whose career goals include a medical (MD)or other professional degree (JD, MBA, PharmD, etc.) are not eligible for the program, unless they are paired with a Ph.D. (i.e. MD -Ph.D. or JD-Ph.D.).
