Endowment Donors

With Gratitude To Our Endowed Named Scholar Award Donors

Named Endowment Donors

Through the extraordinary generosity of the donors below, the Oregon Chapter has been able to establish three (3) Named Endowed Scholar Awards in perpetuity.

The Fairway Fund Endowed Scholar Award
Caron and Larry Ogg Endowed Scholar Award (2)
Barbara and Philip Silver Endowed Scholar Award (2)

University Matched Endowments

This is a new matching fund strategy that creates endowments to fund ARCS Scholar Awards in perpetuity. The donor contributes $100,000, while OHSU, OSU or UO match with $50,000, and the Oregon Chapter contributes an amount determined by the board.  Five (5) university matched endowments (UME) have been established.

The Anderson Family ARCS Foundation Oregon Scholar Award Endowment (UO - Biology)
The Fairway Fund ARCS Foundation Oregon Scholar Award Fund (OHSU - School of Medicine)
The Nancy and Dodd Fischer ARCS Foundation Oregon Scholar Award Endowment (OSU - Forestry)
The Caron and Larry Ogg ARCS Foundation Oregon Scholar Award Endowment (OSU - Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences)
The Silver Scholar Award ARCS Foundation Oregon Endowment (OSU - Ag Science)

Scholar Award Fund in Perpetuity

To celebrate a milestone in Oregon Chapter's history, a fund named "The 10th Anniversary Scholar Award" was established in May 2014.  A majority of members contributed to the fund to support scholars in perpetuity.
