Ronald Erwin McNair was an American physicist and NASA astronaut. His academic achievements, including three honorary doctorates of Science and a Ph.D. in laser physics, inspired Congress to fund the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program commonly referred to as the McNair Scholars Program. President Trump’s 2018 federal budget proposal aims to eliminate the McNair Scholars Program, a Federal TRiO Program designed to prepare undergraduate students from disadvantaged and underrepresented backgrounds for doctoral studies at UTSA and around the nation.
