Kelly Gullette Ross - Ph.D. Cell/Molecular Biology - San Diego State University, 2017
“ARCS provided an opportunity to meet great colleagues and share my work with scientists outside of the Biology Field”
Matt de Stadler - Ph.D. Engineering Sciences - UC San Diego, 2013
“Following graduation, I spent a year in the mechanics department at the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden as a postdoctoral researcher. I decided to leave academia and moved to the Boston area. For the past three years, I have been working as an accuracy analyst at Draper. I do modeling, simulation, and analysis of guidance and navigation systems. Most of my work focuses on marine and aerospace applications although I've had the chance to work on several future-oriented research efforts. Being an ARCS scholar was a great honor. It made me feel supported in my work and made me more confident in my future. I enjoyed getting to know my ARCS sponsor, my fellow scholars, and the ARCS community. Thank you for all your hard work”.
Robert Snellman - Ph.D. Mathematics - UC San Diego, 2017
“My experience with the ARCS program was quite uplifting. I enjoyed the camaraderie of the other scholars along with the many experiences of sponsors and donors. I am currently teaching at UCSD while awaiting news regarding a visiting professorship position.”
John Tat - Ph.D. Molecular Medicine - Scripps Research, 2017
Dr. Tat is a Postdoctoral Researcher at UC San Diego School of Medicine. “I have the utmost appreciation. Sponsorship is not just salary for a Ph.D. student, but also an encouragement that the American public believes in what I do. ARCS encouraged me to press on regardless of the challenges because someone believed in me”.
