A LETTER FROM THE WOMEN’S INTERNATIONAL STUDY CENTER
The Women’s International Study Center was conceived by a group of dynamic men and women who were inspired by the achievements of the women who lived in and built the Acequia Madre House, and wanted to continue their legacy into the future with fellowships and programs that aim to help women achieve their goals.
Our style is conversational: we know the impact of deep connections and the importance of inter-generational relationships among women. In each of our endeavors, whether it be a Symposium, a Fellows program, or an International speaker, we strive for meaningful, inclusive dialogue and want to ask important questions. Critical to our success and future planning is feedback from program participants, fellows, and volunteers. The cornerstone of our programs is our Fellowships-in-Residence program. Each year the Women’s International Study Center hosts women working in the arts, sciences, cultural preservation, business and philanthropy to work intensively on their projects. Individuals and groups give public presentations and are given a stipend while they stay at beautiful residences on San Antonio, adjacent to the Acequia Madre House. Our residencies are unique, in that they support such a broad array of projects, encouraging multi-disciplinary and inter-generational dialogue.
As of the Spring of 2018, Women’s International Study Center and Acequia Madre house are now separate and distinct non-profits.
We’ve made many improvements with our new site including enhanced mobile performance, social integration, and improved site navigation. Please drop a comment in our News article or send us an email to let us know what you think!
