Two Programs, One Mission!

McNair ROP UNM Logo

Recognizing that diversity of scholars is integral to education excellence, The University of New Mexico's Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program and the Research Opportunity Program (ROP) seek to produce scholars and researchers who will more accurately reflect the growing diversity in intellectual perspectives, life experiences and cultures in academe.

Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program and the Research Opportunity Program (ROP) prepares undergraduates for graduate school by providing scholars with a faculty-mentored research experience and support for the graduate school application process. When scholars complete the program, many are successful in gaining admission to graduate programs nationwide and are offered financial support to help pay for their education.
