For over three decades, the CHM Fellow Awards Program has honored distinguished technology pioneers—unsung heroes and legends—for their outstanding merit and significant contributions that have advanced computing, illuminated our world, and propelled humanity forward. Past honorees include Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, NASA mathematician and “hidden figure” Katherine Johnson, internet pioneer Vint Cerf, and ENIAC programmer Jean Bartik. Their stories are preserved for future generations in CHM’s Hall of Fellows.
