McNair Program Offers Nnadozie Scholarship

The Dr. Emmanuel Nnadozie McNair Endowed Scholarship is being awarded for the first time this year.

The scholarship was established in honor of Dr. Emmanuel Nnadozie, first director of the McNair Program at Truman. The fund has received many gifts from staff and faculty. It is an endowment and is open to additional gifts.

The goal of the scholarship is to assist individuals who are first generation college students and also come from low-income family background.

To qualify for the scholarship, students must be participants in the McNair program. Students who will be applying to the program this fall are also eligible for the scholarship, pending acceptance.

Applications are available online from Oct. 1-Nov. 1 at

The McNair program’s mission is to increase Ph.D. degrees achieved by underrepresented segments of society. Since receiving its first grant in 1992, the program has produced: 28 alumni with Ph.Ds., 39 currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program, 145 alumni with master’s degrees and 31 currently enrolled in a master’s program.
