The ARCS Foundation is dedicated to helping meet the nation's need for scientists and engineers by providing scholarships for outstanding students in the scientific and technological fields.

"ARCS is a phenomenal organization that touches the lives of numerous scholars and has a very real effect on our national interest," Greenwood said.

The ARCS Foundation is the most generous provider of annual awards to UCSC students. Since 1977, the ARCS Foundation has awarded UCSC students $600,000 in scholarships. This year, UCSC was awarded $60,000 and received an additional matching grant of $20,000 from an anonymous donor, for a total of 8 scholarships worth $10,000 each.

The following UCSC students received ARCS scholarships this year:

The scholarships are open to any graduate or undergraduate student in the Natural Sciences Division or the Jack Baskin School of Engineering.
