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."
