Estrada Non-Profit Scholarship for PLC

Erik Estrada, a CU Boulder and PLC alumnus, has dedicated his professional career to the non-profit sector and educating others how to succeed in similar work. This scholarship honors Estrada’s work and his desire to financially help a PLC student who is also passionate about non-profit work and will pursue the non-profit sector as a professional path. Erik Estrada has expanded the scholarship for funding in Spring 2022. One award of $2000 will be focused on students involved in and pursuing non-profit work, the second award for $2000 will be for a student with a similar single-parent background as Estrada. Estrada wants to honor his past and that of other PLCers like him, and award a student for the resilience, grit and perserverence to dedicate themselves to academic excellence and the pursuit of higher education despite the disadvantages presented to them in a single-parent household.
