Ways to Help ARCS Foundation Scholars

ARCS Foundation chapters provide a unique and cost-effective vehicle for channeling dollars into education without deductions for administrative overhead. When a gift is made to the ARCS Foundation Scholar Award Fund, 100% of each contribution is awarded to a student. All operating expenses are covered by member dues and special underwriting and all ARCS Foundation members donate their services.

Gifts to ARCS Foundation of any amount are gratefully appreciated and are recognized on the Chapter Honor Roll. When an individual donor funds a full Scholar Award, that award is given jointly in the name of ARCS Foundation and the donor.

Graduate Scholar Award Donor $7,500

Scripps Research Graduate Scholar Award Donor $5,000


Annual Gifts to the Scholar Award Fund

Gifts to ARCS Foundation Scholar Award Fund support both continuing and new Scholars. All gifts received during the fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) are awarded at the beginning of the following academic year.

Memorial & Honorary Gifts

Gifts may be made in memory of a loved one, or in recognition of an individual on the occasion of a birthday, anniversary, or special event. All memorials and honoraria help build the Endowment Fund.

Gifts to ARCS Foundation Endowment Fund

Gifts to ARCS Foundation Endowment build an investment fund, the earnings of which provide a permanent source of income to support the Scholar Award Fund in perpetuity. When the Endowment grows by $150,000, the interest earned generates a $7,500 Award.

Gifts to ARCS Legacy Society

ARCS Legacy Society comprises donors who have provided for ARCS Foundation in their estate plans.


We of ARCS Foundation thank you for your partnership in support of the dedicated and hard-working Scholars.
