ARCS Foundation offers a unique funding model which gives donors and scholars opportunities to learn from one another and connect during the 3 year ARCS Fellowship term. As we begin to recruit new ARCS scholars for the fall, our chapter simultaneously recruits individuals to support them. These ARCS supporters may choose to fund an ARCS Scholar with a $17,500 Fellowship award given over 3 years, or they may choose to share the cost with another donor. If you are considering this lasting investment in a graduate student, we invite you to contact us at email@example.com to learn more.
“Being a recipient of a shared fellowship has been wonderful. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to meet two sets of amazing people – and to know they are all rooting for me. “

"Together, we have been able to experience Malika’s enthusiasm for science which is uplifting. We have seen her progress, stumbles, and breakthroughs. Sharing with Sandy and Kent has been particularly enjoyable because, in addition to getting to know and support Malika, the opportunity to interact with Sandy and Kent in new and different ways has enriched us as well."

"Supporting ARCS scholars has provided us with great experiences and wins for all involved: for the UW in attracting outstanding young scholars; for the fellows’ prestige in being selected and for receiving financial assistance while pursuing their PhDs; and best of all, for us as donors whose lives are bettered for the personal relationships we’ve had with gifted, charming students like Malika Hale."
