About

Each year Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) sponsors an awards program that recognizes the research and mentoring efforts of women on the Texas A&M campus. These awards are offered in honor and remembrance of Ethel Ashworth-Tsutsui, a long time member of the faculty of the Biochemistry Department here at Texas A&M University. Dr. Tsutsui was a founding member of WISE and cared deeply about the retention and recognition of women in our graduate programs.

Women graduate students are invited to apply for these awards. Faculty members are encouraged to nominate deserving individuals.
