The EHE Holmes Scholars Program is a prestigious and scholarly opportunity awarded to doctoral students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds who pursue careers in education. Each year, deserving students of this highly competitive program are awarded merit-based scholarships and provided numerous resources and networking opportunities. This includes professional development, mentorship and faculty support that prepares doctoral students for leadership and faculty positions.
The Holmes Scholars Program was originally developed in 1991 to foster diversity, equity and cultural competence in higher education and pre-K to 12th-grade schools. Nearly 700 scholars have benefited from the program since its inception, many of whom are now tenured university faculty or education leaders. The program is administered by the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education.
