Scholars will be working on writing  curriculum vitas, drafting up personal statements, and preparing to present thier research in our Fall CSUEB McNair Symposium. The symposium is open to the CSUEB campus community and students interested in applying to the McNair Program are encouraged to attend on Nov 13th.
