The Wilts Prize annually recognizes one graduate student for outstanding independent research in electrical engineering leading to a doctoral degree. The award also honors Charles H. Wilts; it was instituted by Wilts’ Caltech colleagues and endowed by his friends, students and colleagues as a lasting tribute to the scientist, teacher, and man he was.
