McNair Scholar participants
If you’re a participant in the McNair Program at your current university, you may be eligible for an application fee waiver. On the last page of the application, there is a section where you can request the fee waiver. Once you submit your application, our office will be unable to process the application until we’ve received the required supplemental materials.

You must submit in writing an official letter as follows:

  • It must come from the McNair Program in which you’re currently enrolled;
  • It must be on your institution’s letterhead;
  • It must come from the Program Director.

Your letter should state that you are a McNair scholar and list your course of study, dates attending the university, GPA, and expected date of graduation. Following submission of the letter, your eligibility for a fee waiver will be determined by Graduate Admissions. Qualified McNair Scholars’ applications will be processed after review. 

Verification letters may be mailed to:
