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."

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."
