About Us

Who we are

The Women's Education and Leadership Fund is supported and sustained by a community of women and men who believe that advancing the potential of women is a personal and collective priority. Our community consists of donors, the board of directors, staff, grant recipients and beneficiaries, program participants, the University community and alumni, and the many alumnae, faculty, staff, trustees, and friends of Hartford College for Women.

What we do

The Women's Education and Leadership Fund provides grants, programs, and scholarships that honor the legacy of Hartford College for Women and benefit the University of Hartford in order to

  • enhance the education of women
  • empower women to lead
  • enrich the greater Women's Education and Leadership Fund community

Where we began

Rooted in the deep and lasting history of Hartford College for Women, The Women's Education and Leadership Fund benefits women in all their diversity at the University of Hartford and beyond. Our grants and programs have had an impact on women and girls in the greater Hartford region and around the world.

When we began

Established in 2006, The Women's Education and Leadership Fund will have a long and bright future with the support of donors like you.

How we change women's lives and improve our community on campus and off

The Women's Education and Leadership Fund offers scholarships, grants, and leadership development programs to University of Hartford students, staff, and faculty, and promotes collaboration within and beyond the University, including inspiring conversations for all and University-wide lectures featuring inspiring women.
