Why Do Scholar Alums Give?

ARCS Scholar alums pay it forward by providing support for the next group of promising science and engineering graduate and undergraduate students. When giving to the ARCS Scholar Award Fund, you can know that 100 percent of your contribution supports a student without deductions for administrative overhead. Scholar awards are an essential recruiting tool for the best students in the nation to a university in our area. There our ARCS Scholars enhance programs in their chosen field, and through networking and mentorships, are encouraged to remain in the area after they receive their degrees, thereby continuing to contribute to the community.

An Underwriting Opportunity

Los Angeles Founder Chapter gratefully accepts underwriting. The highlight event of our year is the Scholar Awards Luncheon, held in November 4, 2016, and our Spring Gala, April 30, 2017. At the ARCS SRL the ARCS scholars receive their scholar award, and it’s an opportunity for donors, guests and Chapter members to meet with the scholars and university faculty. It’s a prestigious gathering, always well attended. The Spring Gala is an opportunity for members and donors to recognize an outstanding individual, family or organization that has significantly helped ARCS Los Angeles Founder Chapter achieve our mission.

Thanks from Courtney Yaeger, Graduate Student at University of California, Los Angeles

"Thank you so much for generously supporting me through my graduate program in neuroscience.  With you help, I am able to dedicate more of my time to making new discoveries about neural circuitry!  With funding opportunities becoming smaller and more competitive than ever, your contribution has a big impact!  Thank you for helping me in business - we will make you proud!

Thanks from Jennifer Tribble, Graduate Student at University of California, Los Angeles

"It is with great please that I accept the ARCS Fellowship for 2016-2017.  As a graduate student in the life sciences, I fully appreciate the mission and generosity that ARCS Foundation exhibits to young researchers like myself.  The foundation's dedication to supporting promising young scientists and engineers can be like-changing, and allows its fellowship recipients to become leaders in the fields of science, engineering, and medical research.  As an ARCS fellow, I strive to uphold the values that the ARCS foundation represents.  This scholarship has furthered my professional and academic education enormously, and for that I am humbled and grateful.  I look forward to continuing my journey toward becoming a leader in my scientific field with the immense help of the ARCS fellowship."

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."
