Each year the Oregon Chapter honors its scholars at the "Recognizing Genius" Scholar Awards Luncheon.
ARCS Foundation Oregon has set a goal to procure $100,000 in sponsorships to fully support the 2018 Luncheon. This support will ensure that all other money raised goes directly to fund the ARCS mission.
This is our signature event and is attended by business and community leaders, university presidents, faculty, and ARCS scholars and members.
The luncheon provides the opportunity to showcase to the broader community the ARCS Foundation mission, our scholars, and the universities that we support.
