A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty:

Loyola University Chicago's McNair Post-Baccalaureate Program helps low-income, first generation college students and students from groups who are underrepresented in graduate eduation who have the potential to earn an advanced degree. Through this program, Loyola's McNair Scholars will receive academic and personal support as they finish their undergraduate degrees. They will have faculty mentors who will advise them on the fundamentals of research professional development. McNair Scholars also participate in a summer research internship and will receive a summer research stipend of $2,800. They will also have the opportunity to have paid travel expenses to present research at a professional conference. In preparation for graduate school, GRE preparation fees will be waived and McNair Scholars will receive assistance in applying to graduate schools and have paid travel expenses for graduate school visits as well as assistance in applying for scholarships and grants that will help fund a graduate education.
