Sidney Kuo - The Cornelia H. Stevens Scholar

"As a fourth year graduate student, I have learned that the first three years of graduate school are crucial to the development of a good scientist.  Over the last three years I found myself constantly learning new scientific techniques, wrestling with how to define important questions, thinking about how to design and undertake careful experiments, and figuring out how to interpret data.  These lessons are hard enough to learn without having to worry about surviving on a graduate student stipend.  With the support of my ARCS scholar award I was able to focus on the work at hand.  My progress over the last three years is due in large part to the fact that I have been able to direct my attention and effort on my thesis research free of major financial concerns. Thanks to ARCS I am on track to successfully complete my Ph.D. and continue towards my ultimate goal of becoming a research scientist."

Jacob Postman – The Mark H. & Leslie M. Workman Scholar

“Receiving the ARCS scholar award at the beginning of my program gave me the confidence that helped me get a running start in my research. The financial stability it provided gave me the ability to focus on my work and worry less about affording grad school. I am extremely grateful to the ARCS program for believing in and supporting my ability to work on some really cool projects that I am passionate about.”

Molly Harding – The Cyndy & Edward Maletis Scholar

"The ARCS scholar award, in addition to financial support, has given me the opportunity to interact with members of the community that I wouldn't typically meet during my life as a graduate student in the lab.  I have been excited by these individual's enthusiasm for scientific progress through research.  This enthusiasm motivates me during frustrating experiments or long days, enabling me to be a better scientist.  I am so grateful for my experiences as an ARCS scholar and looking forward to continued friendship with the ARCS community.”
