HAMMOND | Thirteen Purdue University Calumet students are engaging in research relating to the sciences, engineering, management and liberal arts as summer research interns in the university’s Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program.

The student researchers are Hillary Anthony and Christopher Radjenovich, both of Dyer; Douglas Flournoy, Ryan Ordonez-Haggard, Morgan Walker and Erica Williams, all of Gary; Evan Hixon, of Griffith; LaJenne Alcantar, Daniel McGee and Jonathan Wilson, all of Merrillville; Keith Whyte, of Munster; Amanda Thorpe, of Valparaiso; and Clameirdre Prince, of Broadview, Ill.

Also known as the McNair Scholars Program, this U.S. Department of Education initiative seeks to help prepare students from underrepresented segments of society to attain a doctoral degree.

The program is a collaborative effort between students and faculty mentors. The collaboration introduces students to the nature of graduate study and scholarly activities within their chosen discipline.

While engaging in research similar to what they will encounter in graduate school, each scholar has received a $2,800 stipend for participating in the program.
