The WINGS WorldQuest Women of Discovery Awards were established in 2003 to recognize extraordinary women making significant contributions to world knowledge and science through exploration.

On Tuesday, April, 23, 2019, four intrepid explorers were honored and inducted as WINGS WorldQuest Fellows at the Women of Discovery Awards Gala. Eighty-four pioneering women have received this honor and over $650,000 in grants since 2003.

The Women of Discovery Awardees presented their research, initiatives and discoveries during the Fellows Forum, an accessible, interactive symposium for anyone seeking to better understand the world around us, advance scientific inquiry and promote environmental conservation. Our four Women of Discovery Awardees were honored during the Women of Discovery Awards Gala.
