What our ARCS Phoenix Scholars Are Saying...

"The ARCS Scholar Award was the first outside funding I received in support of my graduate studies. In addition to the significant financial support, the ARCS Scholar Award provided me with fortitude to accept and tackle the challenges that lay ahead in my graduate research program. ARCS Foundation was the first to give me the feedback I needed to know that others thought my research was worthwhile."

 

 

What our ARCS Phoenix Scholars Are Saying...

"The scholar award allowed me to pursue my research on a full time basis rather than serving as a teaching assistant during the term. This provided a significant impetus to my research."

Lucy Mullin - NAU Lauber Endowment Scholar

Lucy received her B.S. in Botany and her M.A. in Biology from Humboldt State University.  Her research explores how land management and climate affect forest health and productivity, regional water yield, and carbon sequestrations in southwestern ponderosa pine forests. She is developing techniques that link stable isotope analyses of water and cellulose to dendrochronological (tree ring) analyses, a novel approach that identifies the mechanisms that underlie interactions of forests and their environment.
