Where Curiosity Begins: Academic Partners

Posted on Tuesday, November 12, 2019

One of the biggest crises facing American collegiate and graduate scientists is the steady decline of federal support for basic research. As student debt becomes larger each year, these young scientists begin to wonder if the work they are doing is important enough to continue in school. But a beacon of hope shines for ARCS scholars.

ARCS Foundation is proud to claim 49 US colleges and universities as academic partners. These institutions have gone through an extensive application and screening processes to ensure the highest quality departments, faculty, programs, and students. ARCS Foundation partners are recognized in academia as leaders in their respective disciplines and are ranked in the top 50 in the country for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  

During this season of giving thanks, ARCS Foundation is especially grateful to its academic partners for maintaining an environment of innovation and discovery for their ARCS scholars. Without the dedication to quality of these institutions, ARCS Foundation would not be able to continue encouraging first-class US collegiate and graduate scientists to make discoveries that will keep the nation scientifically and economically competitive in years to come—and create better lives for everyone!
