Forrest and Norma Brubaker Open Doors Scholarship established at DuBois

DUBOIS, Pa. — The family of Forrest Brubaker, former DuBois Educational Foundation board member, has established an Open Doors 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.

Through the Open Doors Scholarship Program, the University offered a 2:1 match to donors, like the Brubaker family, who made a minimum $30,000 pledge, payable over five years, to establish an Open Doors Scholarship before June 30, 2018. The matching opportunity has now concluded.

The Open Doors Scholarship Program has funded scholarships for students enrolled in programs that will address the financial, academic and personal challenges students face in graduating from Penn State. To date, the Open Doors Scholarship Program — between donor contributions and University matching funds — has generated more than $3 million for student scholarship endowments 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.
