Pierre Apostolides - The Cornelia H. Stevens Scholar

"“ARCS is important to me because it reminds me why I wanted to go to graduate school in the first place: Learning new things is very cool and exciting. An organization such as ARCS that exists for the sole purpose of promoting science shows that this passion for discovery is engrained in all of us whether or not we actively pursue a career in pure research. I would especially like to thank my sponsor Cornelia Stevens for her generosity, kindness and her strong interest in the advancement of science.”

Eric Stoffregen - Oregon Chapter Scholar

"The ARCS scholar award is a great award to get as a graduate student.  Although we are fortunate to be paid a stipend while we're in school, it is a modest amount, leaving us behind many of our peers in other fields in terms of building up savings or retirement accounts.  The extra stipend support provided by ARCS helps a lot with paying bills, starting some savings while in graduate school, and generally taking away some of the economic stresses that being in graduate school can cause.  The ARCS award is a great incentive to entice students to come to OHSU, or a great way to reward those who have chosen to study here.  The ARCS support is definitely something that I am thrilled to have received and hope that their generous support continues to help out many other deserving students."

Sarah Hackenmueller – The Chuck & Ellen McClure Scholar

“For me, the ARCS scholar award has been an important confidence builder as I’ve progressed in my thesis training.  Knowing that ARCS members, members of the community, are interested in the work I am doing, and have faith in my abilities is a huge factor that continues to help me stay motivated on this project.   Thank you for your support for the past three years, and for your continued support of graduate students in Oregon.”
