From our first University Selection Committee Chair at Carnegie Mellon University:

Thank you for your continued very strong commitment to ARCS, and your national leadership.   With the need for national economic rejuvenation and global competitiveness in science and technology, the ARCS mission is as timely and important as it was in 1957 when Sputnik was launched and ARCS was founded.
