My ARCS scholar award was tremendously important to me not just financially, but it was also a huge confidence boost/validation.
Thanks from Scholar Kevin Yehl
"I was very fortunate to be selected as one of this year's ARCS scholars... I plan to pursue an academic career in chemistry... Your support will allow me to continue my biomedical research in developing novel strateigies to treat drug resistant cancers and cardiovascular diseases... Again, thank you so much for your support of the sciences and post graduate education, both of which are very important in keeping America competitive..."
