Success Stories


Success stories are the lifeblood of the Colorado Women’s Education Foundation (CWEF). Since its inception, CWEF has provided well over 500 women with scholarships totaling more than $400,000. Scholarships have been awarded to women pursuing vocational training and certifications, those earning associates and bachelor’s degrees, as well as women attaining master’s degrees and even their Ph.D. These scholarships have supported women becoming professionals in engineering, healthcare, education, business, and more.

CWEF realizes the value and power of education and it achieves its mission by supporting women in the pursuit of their higher education goals. As CWEF celebrates its 40th anniversary, it acknowledges the one constant over the years has been the resolution and goal of being an organization of women reaching out to other women to elevate their lives through the gift of education.
