The work of the Woman’s Educational Society of Colorado College is for one purpose — to provide financial assistance to CC students. One recent WES Scholar has shared her story with us. Meet Kristie Shirley '20.
The goal of WES’ Board of Managers is to provide WES Scholars with no less than 10 percent of the total cost of Colorado College attendance. WES may increase the amount of funds for each scholar if members increase the level of their membership, make bequests, and make other contributions for scholarships. It is the hope of the entire Board of Managers that through members’ generosity, WES will be able to raise the level of financial support provided to WES Scholars.
Please consider joining WES, donating to WES, or increasing your membership level today. Contact us for details.
