The UNCG-McNair Scholars Program is excited to work closely with UNCG faculty, administrators, and staff to support our students' pursuit of higher education. There are a number of ways to engage UNCG-McNair Scholars and help identify students that may be interested in participating in the program. 

Nominate a Student

Any UNCG faculty, staff, or administrator that knows students who may be interested in participating in UNCG-McNair should complete the Referral Form so that a UNCG-McNair staff-member can reach out and let them know about this great opportunity.

Serve as a Faculty Mentor

UNCG faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and doctoral students play an integral role in the overall success of the UNCG-McNair program and in the pursuit of graduate education by our students. If you are interested in acting as a faculty mentor, panelist, workshop presenter, or guest lecturer, please let us know by completing the UNCG-McNair Faculty Mentor form.
