McNair Scholars Program

Ronald McNairThe Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program was established in the name of the late NASA mission specialist who perished in the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger explosion. The program’s goal is to encourage and prepare students who are traditionally underrepresented in college to pursue graduate studies – specifically, the Ph.D. The program provides a variety of academic support and services. The McNair Scholars Program at CSUDH was established in 2004, and to date we have successfully achieved a 93% graduate school acceptance rate.
