PLP Scholars Class

PLP Scholars are a select group of students who participate in enriched leadership development experiences throughout their four years at Colorado State University. In addition to the traditional three-year President's Leadership Program, PLP Scholars will attend small group discussions with the CSU President and top faculty, meet nationally-renowned leaders, receive $2,000 in funding for international service experiences, and complete discover/artistry projects in their field of study. (For a glimpse into the PLP Scholar experience, click here.)
PLP Scholars will be personally advised by staff in the President's Leadership Program and will participate in a Peer Mentor Program. Every year, PLP Scholars will coordinate and implement a service project of their choice within the Fort Collins community.
To apply, students must be high school seniors identified as finalists for one of the following scholarships:  Anschutz, Boettcher, Daniels, Monfort, Puksta, National Achievement, National Hispanic Recognition, or National Merit.
Additional requirements include significant participation in high school leadership and service activities, and a commitment to leadership, service, and scholarship in college. Final selection will be based upon receiving one of the aforementioned scholarships. Admission to the program will be on a rolling basis until the five PLP Scholars are selected and confirmed. As such, you are encouraged to complete your application as soon as possible.
