From their website:
"The McNair Student Achievement Program prepares selected University of Hawai'i at Mānoa undergraduates to pursue doctoral study. McNair students come from disadvantaged backgrounds and demonstrate strong commitment to academic excellence in science, technology, engineering and math. A cohort of McNair participants each year receives personalized faculty mentoring and other academic services in a culturally and socially supportive environment. As McNair students immerse themselves in research and other scholarly projects, college becomes not only a path to a Ph.D. degree but a stepping stone to making a vital contribution to their respective communities."

There are several other criteria that are used in the selection of students, including a minimum number of credits students have completed at Manoa or in the UH System.
