ARCS Foundation Seattle provides fellowships to PhD and MD/PhD scholars in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math) at the University of Washington and Washington State University. Such fellowships enable our public research universities to attract the best graduate students, who in turn attract major grants and top faculty.
The many ARCS Fellows who settle in our state continue to play significant roles beyond college: biotech, for example, thrives in Seattle due in part to research contributions made by current and former ARCS Fellows. Worldwide, ARCS Fellows have impact achieving medical breakthroughs, securing patents and initiating start-ups.
We rejoice in the opportunity to help launch these scientists, and we invite you to experience the thrill of witnessing these outstanding young people make their mark. Please contact us if you are interested in helping bridge the gap between eager students and a better world.
