Keeping in touch with our former Fellows is an important Program goal. Not only does it help ensure continued funding for our Program, but it allows us to see how we can assist former McNair Fellows in pursuing their educational goals. Please take a moment to fill out the contact form and let us know what you are doing. Are you in a master's or Ph.D. program? Are you working? Have you gotten married? We love hearing from our past Fellows, so keep in touch and update your information via the Alumni Update Form.
