The McNair Scholars Program is a federal TRIO program funded at 187 institutions across the United States and Puerto Rico by the U.S. Department of Education. It is designed to prepare undergraduate students for doctoral studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities. McNair participants are either first-generation college students with financial need, or members of a group that is traditionally underrepresented in graduate education and have demonstrated strong academic potential. The goal of the McNair Scholars Program is to increase graduate degree awards for students from underrepresented segments of society.
The Your Own Undergraduate Research Experience at CU program (YOU'RE @ CU) may be for you! YOU'RE @ CU is an exciting opportunity to gain practical research experience in engineering by linking with a graduate student mentor. Get hands-on experience during your undergrad that will inspire you to make a world of difference! You'll work on a research project 3–5 hours per week and participate in a 15-week seminar course on research practices during the Spring semester. You'll also develop your own research hypothesis and work through the research process, culminating with a research paper and a poster session.
Our mission is to empower underrepresented minorities in STEM by offering them opportunities to engage in research and coupling that with the professional development offered by the greater STEM Routes program, which includes educational workshops surrounding applications to graduate school as well as graduate-student mentorship and guidance.
