Our Impact

Student Stories

The work of the Woman’s Educational Society of Colorado College is for one purpose — to provide financial assistance to CC students. Read about WES Scholars Katie Timzen '19 and Kristie Shirley '20.

Alumni Stories

Hello, all you dog lovers out there! You will enjoy the website of our former scholar Kayla Fratt '16. Kayla, Andrew, and Barley are on the road, not without some mishaps, but obviously having a good time. She writes cute stories about their travels from the dog's viewpoint — a funny kind of device that makes for an interesting read.


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.
