DuBois, PA – Penn State DuBois is getting another matching Open Doors scholarship from a former board member’s family.
The family of Forrest Brubaker, who had been on the DuBois Educational Foundation board, has established a scholarship in his memory and in honor of his wife, Norma.
The family has pledged $30,000 to establish the Forrest and Norma Brubaker Open Doors Scholarship. Penn State offered a two-to-one match to donors this year.
These scholarships help students who wouldn’t generally be able to attend college be able to finish a degree at Penn State DuBois.
The Forrest and Norma Brubaker Open Doors Scholarship will help to advance “A Greater Penn State for 21st Century Excellence,” a focused campaign that seeks to elevate Penn State’s position as a leading public university in a world defined by rapid change and global connections.
With the support of alumni and friends, “A Greater Penn State” seeks to fulfill the three key imperatives of a twenty-first-century public university: keeping the doors to higher education open to hardworking students regardless of financial well-being; creating transformative experiences that go beyond the classroom; and impacting the world by fueling discovery, innovation and entrepreneurship.
