Recent ARCS Events

Jessica Corman - ASU ARCS Scholar

Jessica received her B.S. in Biological Sciences and a B.S. in Science of Earth Systems at Cornell University. Her research examines the complex interactions between calcium carbonate deposition and microbial growth in aquatic systems. This will shed light onto some of earth's living organismal communities and suggest ways to attenuate nutrient pollution in freshwaters.

Louis Lamit - NAU ARCS/Windrow Endowment Scholar

Louis received his B.S. in Biology at the University of Montana and his M.S. in Biology at Northern Arizona University. His research examines the endophytic fungi associated with the bark of cottonwood trees. He is investigating the positive effect that endophytes have on tree growth and documenting rare endophytes species that have not been described. Understanding how these fungi interact with cottonwoods will have important implicatons for agriculture and forestry practices. 

What our ARCS Phoenix Scholars Are Saying...

"I was very appreciative of the ARCS dinner in Phoenix.  It is rare that a student gets to personally meet and thank those who contributed to an award. Because the award is unlike most funding, I continue to be proud of my ARCS Scholar Award. Even after all these years, I still list it on my resume under "Honors and Awards."
