Welcome to NoGAP, SSU's McNair Scholars Program
NoGAP services can be broken down into three parts:
Part One: Faculty Mentorship and Research ProjectInterested SSU faculty agree to mentor one or more McNair Scholars and include them in professional academic activities, including research activities, to help prepare them for graduate school. Participants who meet NoGAP program requirements may receive a stipend of up to $2,400 to complete the research project, which will be published in an academic journal and presented at our annual symposium.
Part Two: Preparation for Applying and Enrolling in Graduate SchoolThe project provides workshops covering various topics such as GRE preparation, statements of purpose, and preparing the symposium presentation. In addition, NoGAP participants will work with our advisors on an individual basis as they prepare their graduate school applications.
Part Three: Attending Conferences, Campus Visits, and Other Travel
McNair Scholars are encouraged to travel to professional conferences and present their research and visit with faculty at Ph.D. granting institutions that they are applying to. Participants who meet program requirements may receive funding for this travel.
