WES inspires women for a lifetime of courageous exploration.

The Next Generation of Women Leaders


The Woman's Educational Society of Colorado College (WES) contributes funds toward tuition and book allowances for 21 Colorado College women who have been selected as WES Scholars.
WES Scholars are chosen for their achievements, academic success, personal promise, and financial need.
The value of the WES Scholarship varies by year. In the 2020-2021 academic year, each scholarship is $8,900 or 11.4 percent of the cost of attendance at Colorado College. The current scholarship commitment for 21 students totals $186,900.
WES also has limited funds available for study abroad, off-campus study, and special projects.
