ARCS Oregon supports American scientists' dreams of being light years ahead
ARCS (Achievement Rewards for College Scientists) Foundation believes that our greatest science questions will be answered by the young minds at work today in U.S. colleges and universities. We also believe that the strength of our nation’s economy depends on a highly educated and innovative workforce.
ARCS (Achievement Rewards for College Scientists) Foundation is a national volunteer women's organization dedicated to advancing science and technology in the United States by providing financial awards to academically outstanding U.S. citizens studying to complete degrees in science, engineering and medical research. Since Oregon Chapter’s incorporation in 2004, 175 scholars have received scholar awards. Private donations from members, friends, corporations, and foundations have enabled our chapter to donate over $2.8 million to PhD students studying at OHSU, Oregon State University and the University of Oregon.
