Students in Cal State Fullerton’s McNair Scholars program will be sharing their research during a Saturday, April 30, public symposium at the Anaheim Community Center. The 6:30-9 p.m. program is free and open to the public.
The McNair program, funded by the U.S. Department of Education and established on campus in 1999, supports low-income, first-generation and underrepresented students achieve their educational goals beyond the bachelor’s degree.
Each year, 25 students become a part of the program, which provides faculty mentors, graduate-level research internships and workshops; seminars about graduate school selection, research, technical writing, time management and other subjects focused on getting into graduate programs; opportunities to travel to McNair symposia and conferences across the country; and one-on-one advisement and support from their peers. In the last 10 years, more than 20 scholars have earned doctorates and more than 70 have graduated with master’s degrees.
Reservations are requested by Friday, April 22, and can be made by emailing Patricia Literte.
