The College of Science warmly congratulates Jesse Howe, Ashley Pica and Jesse Laney for their selection as 2018 ARCS (Achievement Rewards for College Scientists) Foundation Oregon scholars. They are among the 23 young scientists and engineers who received ARCS scholarships this year. Overall, 14 Oregon State University received scholarships from the ARCS Foundation this year.
The ARCS Foundation Oregon Chapter supports outstanding doctoral students in STEM fields at Oregon Health and Science University, OSU and the University of Oregon. The 14-year old chapter has supported over 225 Ph.D. candidates with financial aid of more than $3.6 million raised from endowed funds, donors and chapter fundraising.
Through its partnership with the ARCS Foundation, OSU is able to recruit the very best Ph.D. students into science and engineering programs. The ARCS award provides doctoral students with $18,000, payable over three years at $6,000 per year.
Kudos to these first-year Ph.D. students, our 2018 ARCS Scholars!
