UC hosts McNair Scholars and the McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program designed to assist undergraduate students from disadvantaged backgrounds to prepare for doctoral studies.
UC also administers an Upward Bound program designed to motivate and provide academic skills for low income or first generation students interested in education beyond high school.
Several scholarships exist for students of low-income or from an underrepresented group. Three different scholarships are available for students transferring from community and technical colleges. Another scholarship, the Darwin T. Turner Scholarship, is available for incoming freshman from an underrepresented group.
