Woman's Educational Society

The Woman's Educational Society of Colorado College was founded in 1889 to help Colorado College students in financial need to pursue their educations. 

A WES member who contributes over and above the basic dues of $25 will be contributing to tuition and book allowances for 21 Colorado College women selected as “WES Scholars” for their achievement, academic success, personal promise, as well as need.

A WES member has many opportunities to interact with our scholars through WES social events (teas, receptions, and luncheons), fundraisers (Van Briggle tours and campus tours), and campus activities (scholar athletic events, plays, and art shows).
