Despite the fact that U.S. federal TRIO programs, like the Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program, aim to enrich academic spaces for underrepresented students, there are many challenges that minority students face as they move through the program pipeline. This article provides insight into programming efforts by the McNair program at the University of Texas-Austin through interviews with current and past McNair scholars. Furthermore, areas of improvement in planning and integration for local and national application are discussed using the example of UT-Austin’s Intellectual Entrepreneurship Consortium.
