Giving to ARCS Foundation Atlanta assists students of high achievement in science, engineering and medical research. Support for our scholars comes from three sources: member dues, additional member contributions, and generous donations from corporations, foundations and families who believe in the ARCS Foundation mission. All contributions designated for scholar awards go directly to scholar support - ARCS Foundation Atlanta does not retain any portion of donations for administrative expenses. Atlanta Chapter ARCS Scholar Awards are important in recruiting the best scholars to come to the schools that we support. Our scholars are encouraged to stay in Georgia after graduation to explore, innovate, and create, thereby enriching Georgia's scientific ecosystem.
The following charts illustrate the investment that has been made in America's future as a result of the generosity of local corporations, foundations, individuals and ARCS Foundation's Atlanta Chapter membership since it's inception in the early 1990's.
