Chase Butler, 2008-2011 Scholar

My ARCS award has allowed me to make connections with professionals in my field. It has given me a chance to learn about the roles of conservation scientists in institutions, as well as tell them about the research I've been doing.

--Chase Butler, 2008-2011 recipient of the Hans and Leslie Fleischner Award 

Prince Awuah- Pittsburgh Chapter Award

I truly want to thank all the donors who made the ARCS fellowship possible.  This scholarship has given me the opportunity to travel to conferences to present my work and learn from colleagues. It has also allowed me to purchase laboratory equipment to help perform my work effectively and efficiently.  Without ARCS, these tasks would have been extremely difficult, so I am very grateful for the excellent opportunity to be an ARCS scholar.

Whitney Coyle- The Bennett-Coppersmith-Palmer Scholar Award

Being an ARCS Scholar has been very rewarding thus far. I have been able to focus much more on my studies and research, than on the financial worries that graduate school can bring. ARCS Foundation has also given me the priceless opportunity to meet other great women who support the sciences. These contacts, with ARCS donors and other ARCS scholars, will be a valuable asset for my future research career.
