Changes to PLF

With the transition in presidential leadership at San Diego State, this is an opportunity to evaluate PLF and identify ways to improve the program for an even greater impact. We will review the entire Grants program and examine ideas such as focusing on specific themes or University goals and increasing funding to the Excellence Awards honorees.

Over the next few months, the PLF team will be reaching out to donors and our internal partners for feedback. In the meantime, PLF will pause the grants program until further notice. Please continue to check the website for updates.

We hope you’ll continue to support PLF and consider directing your funds to the PLF Endowment. Funds from the endowment will be used to support the annual Excellence Awards, which recognizes six faculty and staff members for their leadership and extraordinary work.
