"In the beginning, the ARCS award was a major factor in my decision to come to OHSU. When I got here, I was introduced to an exceptional group of scholar and alum scientists. These colleagues have helped me write grants, practice my talks, celebrate the small victories of lab work, and commiserated with me when things weren’t working out. On top of this, my relationship with my donor is truly special. She has consistently supported me through the personal and professional challenges that have arisen during the pursuit of my PhD. My relationship with my donor really means a lot to me! I have also enjoyed many great conversations with other members at the annual events. I look forward to the luncheon and picnic every year!"
