They may not know it yet, but Governors State University college students just got a serious boost to their post-graduate futures— nearly one million dollars in grant money from the Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement program.
The McNair program is one of several federal TRIO programs. It is specifically designed to prepare disadvantaged students who have strong academic potential for doctoral studies. Governors State is one of only four new institutions in the nation to be awarded McNair funding.
