Campaign Update 10/29/21

October 29, 2021

Due to an issue with our card processing system, our transaction page temporarily went down on the morning of 10/29/21. Because of this, we have extended the end date of our campaign to Monday, 11/1/21 to give our partners and friends one last chance to support the students we serve. If you are seeing this message on 10/29/21, please come back soon to make your gift!

Thank you for your support!

McNair Contributor

This amount can cover the cost of GRE prep materials for scholars preparing to take the exam. These materials may include prep books, courses, and practice tests.


McNair Supporter

This amount can cover the cost of travel and participation in a cultural event/cohort-building activity. Participating in these activities gives scholars the opportunity to build relationships with one another, thus forming a network of peers, as well as exposes the scholars to experiences they might not otherwise encounter.


McNair Fan

This amount can be used towards graduate application fee support. Not all graduate schools offer fee waivers; this donation would help offset the financial burden of applying to multiple schools.


McNair Advocate

This amount can be used to cover registration fees for conferences where scholars can present their research and gain valuable experience and professional development.


McNair Friend

This amount can cover the cost of one Graduate School Transition scholarship for a scholar who is relocating to attend graduate school. The transition period between undergraduate and graduate school can be financially difficult for scholars as they await their first graduate school stipends. There are various costs associated with transitioning to graduate school, such as travel, shipping of belongings, food, and rent and housing deposits.


McNair Champion

This amount can be used to supplement a scholar's stipend, thus allowing them to minimize the number of hours they work so that they can focus on research and graduate school applications.
