"The ARCS scholar award has provided an invaluable level of financial stability in that it allowed me to focus 100% of my attention on my studies without the need for loans, or an outside job."
Wade Marcum – Oregon Chapter Scholar
“The ARCS scholar award enabled my wife and me to experience a number of opportunities that would have otherwise been unattainable. Although a significant financial burden was lifted through access of this scholar award, I found that the relationships that I created over the previous three years were more valuable than any amount of money. For that I thank all ARCS members.”
Aaron Wortham – The Dodd & Nancy Fischer Scholar
“The ARCS scholar award was one of the decisive factors in my decision to study cancer biology at Oregon Health and Science University. As an ARCS scholar, I have had many irreplaceable experiences, including the opportunity to share my research with members of the community.”
