Academic Support Programming, Office of Graduate Minority Programs

The University of Florida is the newest member of the National Name Exchange Consortium. This consortium matches undergraduate minority students who are interested in graduate education with graduate schools. The name exchange program seeks to increase the number of qualified minority students accepted into graduate school, improve student access to information on graduate school opportunities, and assist graduate schools in identifying qualified minority candidates for graduate study.

For additional information, contact Recruitment and Retention in the Office of Graduate Minority Programs, 115 Grinter Hall, 392-6444, e-mail: ogmp@ufl.edu, or visit the National Name Exchange Web site:

Ronald E. McNair Scholars
The Ronald E. McNair Scholars Achievement Program at UF encourages qualified undergraduate students to pursue their educational studies through graduate education. This high-quality, intense academic research program, which is one of the most prestigious in the country, is designed for first-generation and low-income college students, as well as students from groups underrepresented at the graduate level.

New scholars begin the program at the Summer B term with a six-week mandatory Summer Research Institute. The scholars are enrolled in a three-credit hour Scholarly Writing (ENC) course, along with three other specialized McNair workshops; the Research Process, Statistics for Academic Research, and GRE Preparation. Scholars are required to partner with a faculty mentor and conduct research, as well as attend program workshops and activities.

McNair scholars receive a research stipend of $2400 that is paid throughout the program year. Applications are available in mid October, and the deadline to submit an application is the last day of February.

For more information about additional criteria for the program, call 846-2575.
