PLP Connector Program | ongoing
The PLP Connector Program has always been a great way for alumni to help current students learn about their field of interest. 

PLPals Program
Navigating college and PLP is better with a pal. PLPals is an opportunity for first-year students and upperclassmen to connect, create community and have fun. After taking the survey, students will be paired up with their pal. Everyone will be paired with a PLP family, run by a scholars board member. They will be your contact point for events and questions.

Follow Our Passport Scholarship Recipients

PLPers are constantly seeking out additional ways to engage themselves in the greater campus, local, and global communities. One way our students do that is through the Passport Fund. These funds enable our students to pursue projects and endeavors that they demonstrate a desire to learn more about. You can stay up to date with what they are doing by following our blog!


Past Events

2019 Alumni Panel 

alum panel 19

We are lucky enough to have wonderful alumni who are dedicated to helping PLPers take on major leadership roles in the greater Denver community as well as nationally and internationally. As part of our speaker series, we invite alumni to come back and share their experiences with our current students. This past February we were thrilled to host Jaser Alsharhan - '16, Manoj Bandreddi - '16, Brian Cerkvenik - '02, Kristi Curry - '97, Kristen Ham - '10, and Monica Revare - '09. Our current PLPers were so grateful to hear the insights and perspectives of those who have come before them. Thanks to all of our alumni for being such an integral part of the current student experience! 

Throwback to J-MAC! 

PLP Celebrates 20 Years

Scholars Board put on a Throwback to J-MAC - PLP edition, where current students could celebrate and reminisce with their cohort about all the memories they made in J-MAC! It was a great opportunity for students to connect with PLPers from other classes and bond over their favorite J-MAC activities!
