Pierre Apostolides - The Cornelia H. Stevens Scholar

"“ARCS is important to me because it reminds me why I wanted to go to graduate school in the first place: Learning new things is very cool and exciting. An organization such as ARCS that exists for the sole purpose of promoting science shows that this passion for discovery is engrained in all of us whether or not we actively pursue a career in pure research. I would especially like to thank my sponsor Cornelia Stevens for her generosity, kindness and her strong interest in the advancement of science.”

Wade Marcum – Oregon Chapter Scholar

“The ARCS scholar award enabled my wife and me to experience a number of opportunities that would have otherwise been unattainable. Although a significant financial burden was lifted through access of this scholar award, I found that the relationships that I created over the previous three years were more valuable than any amount of money.  For that I thank all ARCS members.”

Jacob Postman – The Mark H. & Leslie M. Workman Scholar

“Receiving the ARCS scholar award at the beginning of my program gave me the confidence that helped me get a running start in my research. The financial stability it provided gave me the ability to focus on my work and worry less about affording grad school. I am extremely grateful to the ARCS program for believing in and supporting my ability to work on some really cool projects that I am passionate about.”
