This year Portland’s Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS) Foundation has designated nine students from OHSU’s Graduate Studies Program as ARCS Scholars. This Scholar Award provides students with $6,000 per year over three years in support of their academic pursuits.
The Portland ARCS Foundation is one of 17 independently operated chapters nationwide. The mission of the ARCS Foundation Chapters is to support and nurture American women and men in doctoral programs, and since 2005, the Portland Chapter has granted 92 Scholar Awards totalling more than $1.25 million.
