Ambrosio and Martin join 10 other doctoral students from the inaugural cohort to comprise the 2023-24 Holmes Scholars.
NC State Holmes Scholars receive financial support to attend the Annual AACTE Meeting and Holmes Scholars Preconference meeting, as well as one-time support to attend the AACTE Summer Policy Institute and Holmes Dissertation Retreat and Research Symposium. The faculty program coordinator for the NC State chapter is Assistant Professor Ruby Ellis. Senior Director of Student Services Alex Kappus provides administrative support as the Holmes Scholars program manager.
