PCLP 2022 FAQs

How are accepted scholars matched with a CHC?

Factors include applicant preference, academic interest, local services (i.e. childcare), and availability during the program period.

What are my weekly hours for PCLP?

Most PCLP site partners operate on a business schedule, i.e. 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on weekdays, but this may vary by site.

What is my day-to-day going to be like on site?

This varies among PCLP sites, but we provide peer mentors from past PCLP scholar cohorts to help describe each experience.

May I miss a few days of the program?

No. PCLP spans only six weeks, and scholars may not miss time on site.
