The McNair Achievement Program at Purdue University Northwest is a federally-funded program of the U.S. Department of Education. We provide graduate educational opportunity for students who have traditionally not been a part of the educational mainstream of American society.
As a PNW McNair Scholar, you will become an active participant in the learning process. You will benefit from a nationwide Educational Opportunity Program Network that nurtures your academic, scholarly and career development.
