It is time to reinvest in ARCS and support a new class of brilliant graduate students.
Every year you are a member, you help fund Chapter Scholar Awards.
As we approach the end of this ARCS year, we hope you will renew your membership and continue to support the marvelous scholars chosen by our university partners. Pursuing a PhD or MD/PhD is challenging enough, but COVID-19 has brought even more complexity to the lives of our scholars and to our abilities to personally connect with scholars as we have done in the past.
Our scholars have accomplished a great many things over the years, and we hope to continue developing brilliant PhD’s who will also go on to work at NASA or become an Assistant Dean at OSU in Nuclear Science or help to coordinate the state’s COVID-19 response actions through the Oregon Health Authority. The Executive Vice President and Chief Research Officer at OHSU’s Research & Innovation is an ARCS scholar alum from the University of Washington. Our world needs more of these bright and talented people in these times of climate and health challenges and when the nation is looking at massive infrastructure projects in the near future.
Hear why you should renew your ARCS Oregon membership!
Scholar Alum from OSU, Gretchen Engbring, pays back by joining our Chapter.
Please continue your financial contribution to ARCS scholars by renewing your membership. We do appreciate your investment in our scholars and in advancing science and technology to improve our world.
COVID-19 continues to challenge our everyday lives though we are beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel. ARCS Oregon continues with caution to use virtual platforms until safe to gather again in person. Our Annual Meeting will be virtual on May 20th; we are considering a virtual garden tour in lieu of our Summer Party; and the Scholar Awards Luncheon is at least temporarily the "Scholar Awards Fundraising Event" (SAFE) on October 20, 2021. More information will be forthcoming. We hope you have enjoyed the many educational programs offered throughout the year.
