WISC Awards



In 2014, WISC introduced two awards to recognize their members for their contributions. Through the efforts of these members and others, WISC has continued to offer programming for supporting women in STEM. As a volunteer student organization, WISC truly values our members who have given so much of their time and energy to keep WISC running and improve WISC for the future.
