University Support Through ARCS Scholar Awards

An Oregon ARCS Scholar Award is a prestigious, unrestricted award of $18,000 ($6,000 per year for three years) that provides an essential tool for recruiting and retaining top students to Oregon. Lead researchers depend on graduate students to bring fresh ideas and perspectives to their labs and to perform the day to day experiments necessary for discovery. OHSU, OSU and UO compete with other outstanding universities to attract promising PhD candidates. ARCS awards make admission offers more desirable.
