AAP created this page for our more than 43,000 alumni. We recently celebrated our 35th anniversary, and we extend our sincere thanks to those of you who joined us in our celebration.
In case you've forgotten, AAP is the largest - and the best - program of its kind in the nation. For 35 years, we've stressed the importance of academic equity and educational excellence. We've also preached the importance of giving back to the community. AAP was once your community, and we ask that you take a few moments and think about your AAP community. "Giving" can involve more than simply donating money to a good cause - which we certainly invite you to do - but it can also mean far more, to you, to current AAP students, and to those students who will become a part of AAP in the future.
We want more than your money. We want your curiosity, your commitment, and your passion for social justice. Examine our web site and you will see some of our outreach projects (CCCP, VIPS) for high school and community college students. Outreach doesn't stop at UCLA's doorstep; we encourage AAP students to begin exploring the many fields of research open to them as undergraduates (GMP). We also push all of our students to begin thinking about (graduate or professional schools).
Do you know of internships in your current field that would be of interest to AAP students?
Are you yourself a success story? Let us share your story with our students in our Alumni Spotlight page. Are you interested in the dozens of scholarships that the AAP Scholarship Committee awards each year? If you can't contribute money to this fund, perhaps you'd be interested in contributing your time as one of the readers for this committee.
Are you a teacher, doctor, or lawyer? Our mentoring programs need people who can volunteer a few hours a week to talk to AAP undergraduates contemplating a career in your field - and they could really benefit from your expertise.
