The McNair Scholars Program helps connect motivated undergraduate students with faculty and research mentors to work on primary research projects and prepare papers and conference presentations as preparation for doctoral studies. 

UO McNair Journal

Published annually, the Research Journal allows Scholars to share both research abstracts and papers in an industry recognized manner. The Journal is released primarily digitally every spring.


Scholars regularly present their research as both spoken and poster presentations at both UO and national conferences throughout the year, and receive travel funding to experience these professional opportunities.
