Each Named Scholar Award of $15,000 funds one PhD graduate student in an area of science, engineering, technology, or medical research over a three-year period. Named Scholar Awards are created by ARCS Pittsburgh Chapter members and community members who understand the importance of these awards for recruiting and supporting world-class students at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. Sponsoring a Named Scholar Award gives the donor the unique opportunity to engage with the scholar.
In addition, every member in ARCS Pittsburgh Chapter contributes a minimum of $475 each year to the Chapter, and these contributions combine to fund our ARCS Pittsburgh Chapter Scholar Awards.
