      This is an amazing program that I have been part of as a faculty mentor. The students I worked with probably would never have gone onto, or even seen the potential for, going on to graduate school. A very, very valuable program!

      I am signing for the many opportunities and doors open to me through the McNair Program. It has changed my life and has allowed me to pursue my dreams! Please do not eliminate these much needed programs that add and diversify the existing academy.

      McNair Program was the conduit to my dream of becoming a Researcher, Traveler and Book Lover. I met my wife through this program and she is in her Ph.D. program. McNair is awesome!

      McNair transforms lives. It brings people of ALL walks of life- no matter the gender, race or class - togehter for the purpose of working hard to conduct research and contribute our gained knowledge and experience to society. McNair scholars are the future leaders (including policy makers) who will shape our nation going forward. Do not stand in the way of this sort of positive progress. Support it! All ambitious, focused young people deserve an opportunity.
