Fellowships and Application Fee Waivers

The McNair Scholars Program has proven so successful at preparing students for graduate school that many universities offer special incentives to attract program graduates. These incentives range from application fee waivers to dedicated fellowships. Fellowships may be competitive, but some universities offer assistance for every McNair graduate who is accepted.

A list of these incentives is maintained by the Council for Opportunity in Education. As the McNair program grows in size and reputation, more and more graduate programs are adding incentives and competing for McNair alumni.

To take advantage of these incentives, McNair Scholars at Kansas State University should visit the McNair office for fee waiver forms and McNair Scholar verification forms. There may be other schools offering McNair incentives that have not yet been reported, so be sure to inquire about them at every school you apply to.
