Selorm Atiedu and Patricia Leigh

Dress rehearsal for graduate school

McNair Scholar Selorm Atiedu (right) summarizes his research to Patricia Leigh, ISU curriculum and instruction, during a poster presentation April 24 by this year's McNair Scholars. The program helps low-income, first-generation or minority college students complete their undergraduate degrees; enter graduate school and complete Ph.D. degrees. Undergraduate scholars are paired with faculty mentors who involve them in research and introduce them to the rigors of graduate school. The student posters will be on display during business hours through May 13 on the ground floor of Beardshear Hall. Photo by Bob Elbert.
