Holmes Scholar Program

The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education’s (AACTE) Holmes Scholars Program supports systematically marginalized doctoral students by providing them with the academic and professional guidance needed to be successful in the field of education.

Scholars will have access to a national network of peers, research and mentoring opportunities, and job fairs. Active members are also invited to attend the ACCTE Annual Meeting, Annual Holmes Scholars Summer Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., and the research retreat.

The Mary Frances Early College of Education’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion coordinates the program at the University of Georgia. There is an application process and an expectation that members of the program will actively engage in the program’s events and programming.
