Alumni

The McNair Scholars Program has successfully recruited 300+ low-income and first-generation students who are underrepresented at the doctorate level. While the national McNair Programs average for scholars entering graduate education is 25-41%, SJSU has more than 70% enter graduate school each year. We're extremely proud of both our scholars' and program's successes!
