The San Diego chapter of ARCS began in 1985 and has grown from the original four founders to more than 100 members today. As we reach our 36th anniversary, we have made more than 1400 awards totaling well over $10 million. Annual awards to Scholars range from $5,000 to $10,000. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the San Diego ARCS chapter has awarded $420,000 to 46 Scholars.

SAN DIEGO CHAPTER

All ARCS Scholars supported by the San Diego Chapter are enrolled in doctoral programs

ARCS Scholars are selected by their institutions in recognition of their achievements and their exceptional promise to contribute significantly to their fields. Basic requirements have been established by ARCS® Foundation, Inc.: Scholars must be U.S. citizens and have at least a 3.5 GPA; they must be enrolled in academic degree programs in science, engineering, and medical research. Awards are unrestricted and merit-based. The San Diego chapter focuses on supporting students in doctoral programs, and the ARCS Scholars we have funded have a 98% graduation rate, compared with the national rate of 60% for graduate students in the sciences and engineering.
