The Women’s International Study Center inspires and enables women to achieve their goals.

Inspired by the achievements of Eva Scott Fényes, Leonora Scott Muse Curtin and Leonora Frances Curtin Paloheimo who built the Acequia Madre House, the International Women’s Study Center celebrates their legacy with our Fellowship-in-Residence program.

Through encouraging inter-generational dialogue, multi-disciplinary projects, and independent research, we celebrate women’s achievements in arts, cultural preservation, science, business and philanthropy.
