Members of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County faculty work closely with McNair Scholars as Mentors. Faculty Mentors are selected from the fields in which McNair Scholars intend to pursue research projects and/or graduate study. Mentors guide McNair Scholars through the research process and help educate them about graduate school opportunities and strategies for success. They also provide an introduction to the culture of their discipline. McNair Scholars may select a Mentor from those with whom they have studied or worked. Faculty members are encouraged to apply to serve as Mentors by contacting the McNair Office.
