Living an Equitable World into Being

The CWC Leadership Scholars program is the modern-day embodiment of the 130-year history of the Colorado Women’s College. Committed to continuing CWC’s legacy of creating transformative higher educational experiences for women, the CWC Leadership Scholars program provides academic, community and financial support for up to 15 women-identified, incoming DU undergraduates who identify as first-generation college students and/or students of color.

Our goal is to grow the program, supporting up to 20 women per year for a total of 80 students enrolled annually.
