Thanks from Monica Gerth, Research Fellow at University of Otago, New Zealand

My ARCS scholar award was tremendously important to me not just financially, but it was also a huge confidence boost/validation.

Thanks from Alum Collette Miller, Postdoctoral Fellow at US Environmental Protection Agency

"Thank you all for reaching out and the support over the years. It's been a rocky few years following the passing of my doctoral research mentor a few weeks prior to my dissertation defense. Trying to rebound from his loss, finishing my dissertation, and figuring out where to go from there was challenging to say the least ... Thank you again for your support. Honestly I did not know how much I would have ended up relying on the generous gift that the Atlanta Chapter of ARCS Foundation provided when it was first received. However, it was vital in helping me launch a new chapter in my career when I found my plans collapse when my mentor passed. Again, THANK YOU!"

Thanks from Alum Eliot Quon, Postdoctoral Researcher at National Renewable Energy Laboratory

ARCS Foundation has been a highlight of my academic career thus far, thank you for the support!
