The Dr. Brooks Carlton Fowler Endowed Presidential Graduate Fellowship in Electrical and Computer Engineering was established in his memory by Brooks' wife of 43 years, Martha Carolyn Shultz Fowler. They met while working at Texas Instruments. Martha also received her doctorate in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin, but a few years earlier in 1969.
