The CWBA Foundation provides an annual scholarship to a law student at both the University of Colorado School of Law and the University of Denver Sturm College of Law who best exemplifies our mission. Previously, the scholarship was $2,500 per year. However, for the five-year period 2016 through 2020, the scholarship amount may vary year to year as we fund an endowed scholarship. For years 2021 and beyond, it is our goal to fund each scholarship at a $5,000 level or above. Click Here to view the requirements for the scholarships and a list of past scholarship recipients on the Scholarships and Grants page. You can donate to the scholarship program on the Scholarships and Grants page as well. 


The CWBA Foundation has also funded studies on the wage gap between female and male lawyers in Colorado, co-funded a national study about part-time partnership positions, and much more. Often, the programs funded by the CWBA Foundation are the programs that are put on by the CWBA itself. For example, the CWBA Foundation funded the CWBA’s successful program, Storming the Bench. Please see a partial list of past programs and activities on the “Past Projects and Activities” page.

Colorado Women's Bar Association Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
