Thanks from Erick Moen, Graduate Student at University of Southern California

"Becoming an ARCS Scholar truly changed my graduate career.  It gave me the opportunity to connect with my current advisor, Dr. Andrea Armani, and the freedom to focus on expanding my research.  My work is very multi-dimensional, spanning topics ranging from nonlinear optics to biology to virtual reality.  These types of investigations require collaborations across disparate departments and are very difficult to complete without external support.  Recently, because of this research, I was named one of the top five PhD students in the Electrical Engineering department at USC, the only American this tear to receive the honor.  As a result of this award, I will have a leadership role within the department, encourage students and be a resource for expanding innovation.  It is a powerful illustration of the influence the ARCS Foundation has on its scholars."

Thanks from Clayton Bingham, Graduate Student at University of Southern California

"I am writing to express my sincere gratitude at having been selected for the ARCS Foundation Scholarship.  I am currently in the middle of my second year of pursuing a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at University of Southern California.  My own work is centered on modeling the response of brain tissue to electrical stimulation, which is an increasingly important type of intervention in brain pathologies such as epilepsy, Parkinson's, dystonia, and depression.  It is my career ambition to further develop novel interfaces between computers and brains, both as a means to mitigate cognitive impairment and to enhance natural function.  I will not be quick to forget the significance of this award in helping to ensure my progress along the path to becoming a respected expert in engineered neural systems."

Thanks from Victoria Sun, Graduate Student at University of Southern California

"The guidance I've received from my advisor, professors, and mentors have helped shape my career path, but the support from the Foundation has helped make goals attainable, providing me with the confidence and financial freedom to pursue my dreams.  Being a part of the ARCS Foundation has allowed me the privilege of meeting extraordinary students, entrepreneurs, and professors through events such as the luncheon and annual spring gala.  It is a great privilege and honor to be recognized as an ARCS Scholar.  Your support and dedication to students like myself drive us towards excellence in research and inspire us to leave a lasting impression on our community.  Thank again for your generous support."
