At the beginning of August, ten students from the Westminster College McNair Scholars Program presented their summer research at the 23rd Annual McNair Scholars Symposium at the University of California at Berkeley.  They were a great success!  This symposium includes a number of components designed to enhance graduate school preparation.  Students visited Stanford University, networked with faculty and graduate students, attended a graduate school fair, heard special sessions on careers and graduate study in STEM fields, received graduate admission advice from nationally-known speaker Don Asher, and guidance from a panel of California-based graduate school admissions professionals.  The symposium concludes with a cruise on the San Francisco Bay; students danced and dined with hundreds of McNair Scholars from across the country– they especially enjoyed meeting the cohort from another ASPIRE program at the University of Northern Colorado. Each year, the Berkeley Symposium is a highlight of our services, and a fine way to conclude the intense and busy summer research program.
