Tara White Adams - The Lloyd W. Myers Scholar in Engineering

"It is such an honor to be recognized by an organization such as ARCS. I have met many wonderful, caring people through this experience, and it is very reassuring to know that I have the group’s support. I look forward to being associated with ARCS for a long time and contributing to the organization in the future, allowing future students the opportunities that I have. Having the scholar award, among other things, meant one less stress to deal with when the monthly bills came, allowing me to concentrate more fully on classes and lab work. Having the ARCS scholar award helped propel my research project to a level at which I could publish in peer-reviewed journals and present my results at international meetings, where my work has been recognized by the ISTH Young Investigator Award."

Christina Brow – The Ehlen Family Scholar

"The ARCS scholar award has provided an invaluable level of financial stability in that it allowed me to focus 100% of my attention on my studies without the need for loans, or an outside job."

Sidney Kuo - The Cornelia H. Stevens Scholar

"As a fourth year graduate student, I have learned that the first three years of graduate school are crucial to the development of a good scientist.  Over the last three years I found myself constantly learning new scientific techniques, wrestling with how to define important questions, thinking about how to design and undertake careful experiments, and figuring out how to interpret data.  These lessons are hard enough to learn without having to worry about surviving on a graduate student stipend.  With the support of my ARCS scholar award I was able to focus on the work at hand.  My progress over the last three years is due in large part to the fact that I have been able to direct my attention and effort on my thesis research free of major financial concerns. Thanks to ARCS I am on track to successfully complete my Ph.D. and continue towards my ultimate goal of becoming a research scientist."
