The Penn State Puksar Holmes Scholars (PSU PH Scholars) are doctoral-level graduate students enrolled in the College of Education. The PSU PH Scholars initiative is part of the Holmes Partnership, a national organization that builds sustainable partnerships between colleges of education and K–12 school districts. In 1991, the Holmes Partnership established the Holmes Scholars Program, designed for students from underrepresented groups who are entering the field of education. PSU PH Scholars support a forum that explores and addresses issues regarding their professional growth.

This semester, the PSU PH Scholars have been presenting talks on various diversity issues. Several more presentations remain in the Holmes Speaker series. Be sure to take advantage of these free brown bag seminars.
