ARCS Scholar Award Donors

ARCS Foundation Oregon is honored to acknowledge these generous Scholar Award Donors for the academic year 2023-2024

Each Named Scholar Award of $18,000 funds one graduate student over a three-year period.  Named Scholar Awards are created by Oregon members and community members who understand the importance these awards make in recruiting and supporting world-class students at OHSU, Oregon State University or the University of Oregon.  Sponsoring a Named Scholar Award gives the donor the unique opportunity to engage with the scholar.

In addition, every member in the Oregon Chapter contributes a minimum of $500 each year to the Scholar Award Fund, and these contributions combine to fund our ARCS Oregon Chapter Scholar Awards.

Why Barbara Supports ARCS Scholars
"I love being a part of an extended family for our scholars through ARCS. Our scholars continually inspire me through their vision and exploration of new frontiers we never dreamed possible. By becoming a sponsor, I can help universities choose top PhD candidates, while at the same time, I have the opportunity to engage one on one with our next generation of scientists."
Why Ann and Ron Support ARCS Scholars
"We believe that by supporting scholars it contributes to the strength of our regional schools. In so doing, we hope to continue to attract students who will have an impact both regionally and globally, and further enhance our universities’ reputation."
