GUESTS ENCOURAGED

 

Dear Friends,

Since 1978, The Seattle Chapter of ARCS Foundation has awarded merit-based fellowships to outstanding United States citizens completing Ph.D. degrees in science, technology, engineering, and medical research at the University of Washington and Washington State University. We have contributed over $13 million to talented students pursuing their dreams to solve the scientific challenges facing our world today. These monies have given our state's research institutions a competitive edge in recruiting the nation's finest doctoral candidates to their premier programs.

Research conducted at the University of Washington and Washington State University will continue to have a significant impact locally, nationally and globally. ARCS scholars address compelling research topics in STEM disciplines, teach and mentor undergraduates, and also attract and energize world-class faculty. In today's increasingly competitive global economic climate and the startling evidence that U.S. world leadership in science and engineering is declining makes supporting ARCS Foundation more crucial than ever.

As we celebrate the 2013-14 ARCS Fellows, please consider partnering with us to sustain the vitality of our state's scientific presence by making an investment in the next class of outstanding doctoral candidates who will expand the frontiers of science and technology. The return on your investment has great promise, both in scientific advances and economic development.

Sincerely,

ANDREA THORESON
President, Seattle Chapter
