The McNair Explorers Program is a preparatory program for First Year and Sophomore students to introduce and prepare them for applying to the McNair Scholars Program. The program will help students understand the importance of undergraduate research and what graduate school can offer them.  Explorers will also be introduced to other research opportunities on campus. 

Explorers will participate in a number of workshops and seminars each Fall and Spring semester.  Students that complete the Explorer Program will be given preference for acceptance into the McNair Scholars Program.

Workshops and Seminars will cover topics such as: "What is Research?"; "What is Graduate School?";"Why go to Graduate School?"; as well as classes on library research and research methods.

Applications are being accepted.
