Program Overview:
The UCLA McNair Research Scholars Program is a two-year research intensive program that prepares undergraduate students to apply to the best graduate programs in the country and excel in graduate school while pursuing a Ph.D. in the humanities or the social sciences.
During their two years in the program, McNair students enroll in a weekly McNair Research Seminar course and in the Student Research Program (SRP 99) where they develop an individual research project under the guidance and supervision of a UCLA Faculty Mentor.  In the summer between their first and second year in the program, McNair Scholars participate in the UCLA McNair Summer Research Institute, which includes faculty-supervised research, graduate mentoring, and intensive workshops on graduate school admission.  In their second year, McNair Scholars enroll in independent study courses with their respective UCLA Faculty Mentor, complete their individual research project and write a senior thesis.  Students also apply to graduate school, present at an academic conference in their discipline, complete the McNair Research Seminar series, and submit their research for publication.
