Westminster College hosts the first and only McNair Scholars Program in Utah, which serves students from Westminster, Salt Lake Community College, and the College of Southern Idaho. This federally funded program helps low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented college students find a path to graduate school nationwide. McNair scholars receive GRE test preparation, mentoring, peer support and group activities, and individualized support in selecting and applying to graduate schools. They also participate in an eight-week, faculty-mentored summer research experience and present their research at professional conferences. The program provides research stipends, vouchers for the GRE test, and on-campus housing during the summer research program.
