Apply for McNair Summer Research Internship Program

The McNair Scholars Program at SLU (SLU McNair) is accepting applications from current sophomores and juniors for its 2019 Summer Research Internship Program. Eligible first-generation, Pell-eligible and underrepresented students attending Washington University are welcome to apply.

The program, which will run from June 3 – July 26, will enable students to conduct an original research project under the supervision of a McNair Faculty Mentor and receive a stipend of up to $2800. McNair Summer Research Interns will also receive free housing at SLU for the eight weeks of the program, as well as a meal allowance.

Interested students must first apply to become McNair Scholars by filling out a preliminary application here. Those who successfully pass the initial screening will subsequently be required to submit a summer research proposal. After completing the summer program, interns will be expected to continue their participation in SLU McNair by meeting with their faculty mentor and participating fully in SLU McNair programs and services until they finish their undergraduate degree program.

The Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program (McNair Scholars Program) is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education and prepares eligible high-achieving undergraduate students for graduate school, with emphasis on obtaining a Ph.D. The program serves first-generation college students who demonstrate financial need and are traditionally underrepresented in graduate education. SLU McNair is open to eligible students at Fontbonne, Harris-Stowe, UMSL, Washington University in St. Louis and Webster University, along with those enrolled at Saint Louis University.

Current sophomores and juniors who are interested in this opportunity may complete a preliminary application or send an inquiry to slumcnair@slu.edu. Sophomores must be on track toward having 60 earned credit hours before the internship begins. The deadline to submit a preliminary application for the summer research internship is April 15.
