Welcome to the McNair Scholars Program
The federally funded McNair Scholars Program at Eastern Kentucky University encourages and assists talented, program-eligible, undergraduate students who are committed to achieving doctoral degrees.

In addition, each McNair Scholar at EKU is eligible to receive an EKU scholarship. By demonstrating quality academic performance, ethical behavior, and impressive extra-curricular achievement, McNair scholars at EKU earn respect from academic peers and University faculty and staff members. It is recognized achievement and earned respect that make McNair scholars attractive to top graduate programs across the nation.
