CC’s  Public Interest Fellowship Program (PIFP) Invites You to Nominate a CC graduate for The Livesay Award.

Now entering its 16th year, The Public Interest Fellowship Program provides CC students and graduates with paid, high-caliber, and meaningful work experiences in the nonprofit sector by matching them with some of the best nonprofit organizations in Colorado.

PIFP’s aim is to:

1)   Encourage public engagement and social responsibility in CC students and graduates

2)   Build the capacity of nonprofits that are seeking systemic solutions to societal problems

3)   Develop a new generation of nonprofit leaders

The Livesay Award was created in honor of popular and well-respected Professor Emeritus of Sociology Jeff Livesay, who brought PIFP to Colorado College and has shepherded it through its years of growth to become a signature program on campus.

The Livesay Award is presented each year to a Colorado College graduate who is living out the mission, spirit, and goals of PIFP in his or her life and career by contributing to systemic change, by increasing the capacity of the nonprofit sector, and by helping to build a new generation of nonprofit leaders.

If you know a CC grad who has made a significant career contribution to the nonprofit sector in Colorado over the years, please nominate him or her for the Livesay Award.

Nominations for the 2019 Livesay Award must be submitted by November 15, 2018. Colorado College staff, faculty, and alumni may submit nominations.
