McNair Scholars Program

The University of Georgia will waive the application fee for McNair Scholars interested in applying to any graduate program. Fee waivers are not applicable to professional programs unless arranged by the Department of Recruitment & Diversity Initiatives. To receive a Graduate School application fee waiver, applicants may apply online and select “Request a Fee Waiver” on the payment information screen. Then, complete the application fee waiver form to submit your online application. Applications will be held until a verification letter of participation from a McNair coordinator is mailed to:

Office of Graduate Admissions

The University of Georgia

210 S. Jackson St.

Athens, GA 30602

This verification letter can be submitted by U.S. mail prior to applying to speed up the process. For full consideration for funding opportunities, students are encouraged to submit application and supporting materials by January 1 for graduate programs that begin the following summer or fall semester. For any questions or concerns not provided on the web site, please contact Recruitment & Diversity Initiatives.
