Ishiyama, John T.; Hopkins, Valerie M.
Opportunity Outlook, p20-24 Apr 2001
Assessed the impact of the Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program at Truman State University in Missouri on first-generation, low-income (FGLI) students in comparison to a control group. Found that FGLI program participants are far more successful than non-McNair FGLI students, even when controlling for academic ability and ambition. (EV)
