McNair Scholars Program

The Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program was established in the name of the late NASA Ronald E. McNair, NASAmission 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.
