    As a UConn undergraduate studying a STEM discipline, you are invited to apply to be a UConn McNair Scholar!

    Hello! My name is Dr. Renée Gilberti and I am the Program Coordinator of the UConn McNair Scholars Program. My office is in the Rowe building, room # 204.

    In addition to 1-on-1 mentoring to navigate your pursuit of undergraduate research and graduate school for an MS or PhD degree, being a McNair Scholar provides you with the tools to:

    ***  Foster strong faculty mentor connections in order to pursue, present, and publish an undergraduate research project conducted during the academic year and summer

    ***  Travel to research symposia and network with researchers of your field of study

    ***  Excel on the GRE by providing a free GRE summer course

    ***  Compile a professional portfolio so you will be competitively considered for your top choice graduate school programs

    The application (http://cap.uconn.edu/msp/apply/) is due Friday, October 19, by 12noon, and two letters of recommendation by Tuesday, October 23, 2018. Please review the eligibility guidelines on page 2 before proceeding, and the application checklist (pages 3 & 4).

    Do not hesitate to ask any questions via email or stop by the McNair office, Rowe 204!
