Why be Part of CWC?

When you join the CWC Leadership Scholars Program, you are invited to be part of a community, a family, and a home. Explore some benefits of this program on this page.

  • Financial Support

    You can receive up to $6,000 in scholarship support per year based on financial need. 

  • Leadership Studies Minor

    You will become part of a cohort of 15-20 other women

  • Take six classes with your fellow CWC scholars!

    Complete 24 credits in leadership to develop your leadership understanding and skills

  • Mentoring

    An older CWC Scholar will support you in your first year as your peer mentor. As a part of CWC, you’ll also  build a relationship with a professional mentor to further your career goals

  • Workshops & Events

    CWC hosts two retreats each year into the beautiful Colorado mountains. We also offer speaking events and workshops from CWC alumnae and strong women leaders in the community.

My favorite thing about being a CWC Leadership Scholar is being around other women who can identify with you, being in a safe place free of judgement.
