The Trump Administration is targeting the national Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program (a.k.a., The McNair Scholars Program) for elimination!  McNair is a long-standing, congressionally-approved social justice program intending to diversity the ranks of doctoral degree holders. McNair trains, prepares, encourages and assists first-generation students from low-income backgrounds and selected racial and ethnic minority students who aim for doctorate degrees. The EKU McNair Scholars Program has been operating since 2003 and is part of the federally-funded EKU "TRIO" family that includes Educational Talent Search, Upward Bound, and Student Support Services (NOVA).  Talented McNair scholars honor themselves, thier families, EKU, and the Commonwealth with advanced graduate achievement and leadership in higher education and corporate settings. Please help save this valuable program!  SAVE MCNAIR!
