McNair Scholars



Mississippi State University Graduate School is proud to be the school of choice for McNair Scholars. All McNair Scholars receive a one time $2,500 fellowship during their first semester at MSU. This can be stacked with additional funding students may receive. MSU strives to provide all McNair Scholars opportunities to connect, engage, and expand their network by being a part of a cohort of scholars from across the nation. If you have questions or are interested in visiting the MSU campus, please contact Lindsey Shelton at

Due to the caliber of our programs, research opportunities, and collegiate atmosphere, MSU attracts scholars from across the country.
