Spring Is Just Around The Bend–That Means It’s Time For McNair Recruitment!
Though the snow outside and frosty temperatures may deceive you, spring is rapidly approaching here at UNL. As we head toward March and mid semester exams, here at the McNair Scholars Program we’re looking for next year’s cohort of dedicated new McNair Scholars, and we’re turning to you for help. If you know of bright, dedicated, and passionate undergrads at UNL who fit our program requirements, please let us know!
For our current McNair Scholars, as well as those of you who are part of the larger McNair community, we’re confident that you just might know of promising young Scholars here at UNL who could be part of the McNair Scholars community. If so, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
