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.

"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."

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 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."
