Sponsorship Opportunities

This announcement offers you an opportunity for sponsorship of the SAEOPP McNair Scholars National Conference in Atlanta, GA, June 22-25,2017.  We are expecting to continue our tradition of having an outstanding conference, with participants comprised of more than 500 McNair Scholars from universities around the nation, all of whom are preparing for graduate study. 

The Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program is in its 22nd year and is part of the “TRIO” Programs (i.e. Educational Opportunity Center, Educational Talent Search, Student Support Services, and Upward Bound) that are supported by the U.S. Department of Education. The McNair Program supports low-income/first generation and underrepresented populations by offering undergraduate students opportunities to conduct research and prepare for graduate study.  

McNair Scholars comprise a select group of undergraduate juniors and seniors around the United States who aspire to earn a Ph.D.  There are 201 McNair Programs nationwide, with approximately 25 students per program.  The SAEOPP McNair Conference is one of largest McNair conferences in the country and is aligned with the goals and mission of Grad Schools.com, particularly in assisting students with their national searches for graduate programs.  Our scholars are required to apply to graduate school and would need the services your agency/program(s) provide.  Sponsorship from your organization would do much to increase the usage of your programs and websites as our students are pursing graduate study.  For more information on the McNair Scholars program please visit: www.mcnairscholars.com and for the SAEOPP McNair Conference- www.saeopp-mcnairconference.com
