Each year, the McNair Program selects 10 sophomores who work with faculty mentors through their senior year to develop academic and research projects. As a McNair scholar, the program prepares you for graduate and doctoral studies and encourages you to explore research-intensive careers, including academia and working at the highest levels of science and technology.
Knox is one of just 140 colleges and universities in the McNair Program and one of the first small liberal arts colleges in the nation selected for the initiative.
