Giving to ARCS Foundation Atlanta assists students of high achievement in science, engineering and medical research. Scholars receive awards of $5,000-$10,000, which are renewable up to three years. Unlike most academic grants, ARCS awards are unrestricted, providing flexibility for the recipients to use at their discretion. Your investment makes it possible for ARCS Scholars to attend scientific meetings to explore ideas with cohorts, purchase equipment or computers for research, and travel to areas around the globe to study on site.
With your help, ARCS Scholars are working to create new knowledge and understanding that could one day improve stem cell transplants, identify causes of autism, develop renewable energy materials and accelerate other scientific breakthroughs.
All contributions designated for scholar awards go directly to scholar support - ARCS Foundation Atlanta does not retain any portion of donations for administrative expenses.

Einstein Circle Donor (Named award for a Morehouse College undergraduate scholar) - $5,000
