    Livesay Award

    Who is making an impact?

    Do you know Colorado College alumni who significantly impact Colorado’s nonprofit sector? 

    The Colorado College Public Interest Fellowship Program (PIFP) invites you to nominate a Colorado College graduate for the Livesay Award for Social Change.
    Now entering its 17th 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 the PIFP to Colorado College and has shepherded it through its years of growth to become a signature program on campus. It is presented each year to a Colorado College graduate who is living out the mission, spirit, and goals of the PIFP in their life and career by contributing to systemic change, increasing the capacity of the nonprofit sector, and 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 them below for the Livesay Award. Nominations for the 2020 Livesay Award must be submitted by January 15, 2020. We invite everyone and anyone affiliated with Colorado College to submit a nomination.
