New Name, New Look, Same Mission

The Associated Women for Pepperdine (AWP) was established by Helen Young in 1958 to raise funds to support Pepperdine College. Since that time, AWP has raised more than $4 million towards scholarships for students from Churches of Christ. After looking back on 60 years of fruitful work and prayerfully considering new challenges that lie ahead, the AWP Executive Board has determined that though AWP's mission has not changed, the name must.

AWP's new name, Pepperdine Legacy Partners (PLP), better reflects the ongoing collective efforts of both women and men, partnering together to continue George Pepperdine's legacy of equipping students to live purposeful Christian lives as servant-minded leaders throughout the world. The new name of PLP's scholarship recipients, the Helen Young Scholars, serves to honor the profound impact of its beloved founder. The Board is excited about these changes that not only honor AWP's past, but also effectively invigorate PLP's promising future.
