(Galesburg, IL)  --  Knox College is the recipient of a federal grant of over $1.25-million. The grant will allow the college to continue its highly successful McNair TRIO Program that helps students prepare for academic and research-oriented careers.  The grant is for five years and will be for $252,045 annually. It was awarded by the U.S. Department of Education through the Ronald E. McNair Program.  The program supports students who are the first in their families to attend college or are from ethnic and income groups that are underrepresented in high education and other careers that require advanced degrees.  The McNair Program is named in memory of astronaut Dr. Ronald E. McNair. McNair, who died in the 1986 Challenger space shuttle accident, was the second African-American to fly in space.
