Welcome to the TRIO McNair Scholars Program at Cleveland State University

The goal of the Cleveland State University TRIO McNair Scholars Program is to prepare talented and eligible undergraduates for doctoral studies through involvement in research, participation in seminars, faculty advising, preparation for the Graduate Record Examination, and engagement in other intensive scholarly activities. Students who participate in the program come from disadvantaged backgrounds, show strong academic potential in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics) disciplines, and are committed to pursuing a Ph.D. degree. The program, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, is named after the late Dr. Ronald E. McNair, an African-American physicist and NASA astronaut who perished in the Challenger explosion in 1986.
