$25

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.

$50

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.

$100

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.

$250

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.

$500

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.

$1,000

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.
