With YOUR donation to support the Women’s Club Scholarship Program, some of the most talented dance, music, piano, theater, voice, and visual arts students in the country and abroad will be able to attend one of Chautauqua Institution’s Schools of Performing and Visual Arts in the coming 2024 season! The need for scholarship is great. Over 80% of the students attending one of Chautauqua’s summer schools receive financial assistance.

YOU can help a student’s dream become a reality with a donation to scholarship today! Gifts of any amount are meaningful. No gift is too small; no gift is too large.

Donations of $1,000 or more allow the donor to:

  • Earmark your donation for a specific discipline.
  • Honor or memorialize a specific individual(s).

100% of YOUR gift through the Women’s Club Scholarship Program goes directly to supporting these talented students.

Thank you for caring.

Thank you for your loyal support of the CWC Scholarship Program.
