Forever Buffs Latinx, formerly CU Boulder Latino Alumni Association (CUBLAA) and the Hispanic Alumni Association of the University of Colorado at Boulder (HAA), has been in existence since 1984.
The primary goals of Forever Buffs Latinx are to encourage commitment to the Hispanic/Latino community, to perpetuate the study of Hispanic-American/Latino culture and history, and to encourage individuals in the Hispanic/Latino community to achieve their educational goals. In this effort, Forever Buffs Latinx awards scholarships annually to individuals who are pursuing a degree and have demonstrated a commitment to the Hispanic/Latino community and/or who have contributed to the study of Hispanic/Latino American culture, education and history. This year we gave $40,000 in scholarships.
Forever Buffs Latinx began as a group of alumni interested in having a reunion in 1984. Over time what was initially an opportunity for alumni to unite with old friends evolved into Forever Buffs Latinx. Eight scholarships were awarded in 1988. Since that time, approximately 1,000 scholarships have been awarded by Forever Buffs Latinx, totaling over $900,000.
Forever Buffs Latinx is part of the CU Boulder Alumni Association. If you would like more information on events, activities or would like to attend a board meeting or join the Forever Buffs Latinx's Board of Directors, you can contact any of the board members. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events! Go Buffs!
