Members of ARCS Foundation Oregon are women philanthropists committed to advancing science in Oregon and America. Women who join our Chapter do so to contribute to the support of outstanding students at OHSU, Oregon State University and the University of Oregon. The Oregon Chapter currently has more than 130 members dedicated to making a difference in students’ lives and in the future of America.

Member Benefits 

  • Be a catalyst to the scientific, technological, medical and economic development of the State of Oregon. You can bring a guest whose interest in one of our programs may inspire her to become a member, make a donation to support a scholar, or share with her friends the mission of ARCS. 
  • Make a difference in the life of an outstanding American student.
  • Attend lectures and social events that include behind-the-scenes visits to sites of cutting-edge scientific and technological research. 
  • Participate in scientific field trips to venues not generally open to the public. You can access labs and attend field trips as part of the "programs" experience that put you face-to-face with where the exciting work and research of the speakers and the scholars take place.
  • Meet and mingle with ARCS Foundation scholars, scientists and university faculty.
  • Develop friendships with other women leaders in Oregon and SW Washington.

ARCS Oregon field trips and programs benefit our members

If you are interested in learning cutting-edge research in the fields of technology, medicine, engineering and science, being an ARCS member entitles you to:

  • Recommend subjects of specific interest as "program topics" (i.e. macular degeneration, wildfire management, earthquake probability, ALS, and cancer) that will be presented in a lecture format throughout the year.
  • Volunteer on the Programs Committee where you are in touch with scientists, researchers and scholars who will be featured, along with other like-minded members who are excited to learn.
