Texas Tech University


The McNair Explorers Program is a year-long exploratory program for first-year and sophomore first-generation students to introduce them to undergraduate research and graduate school resources, while also preparing them for applying to the McNair Scholars Program and other Undergraduate programs and opportunities at Texas Tech. 

Explorers will participate in several workshops and seminars each fall and spring semester. Workshops and seminars will cover topics such as: "What is Research?;" "What is Graduate School?;" "Why go to Graduate School?," as well as seminars on library research, research methods, and other research opportunities and resources on campus.

The activities in the McNair Explorers program complement the McNair Scholars Program. Students who complete the Explorer Program will be given preference for acceptance into the McNair Scholars Program.

Applications are being accepted.
