ARCS Foundation is a leading national philanthropic organization started and run by women to advance our nation's competitiveness in science and technology. The vision of ARCS Foundation Seattle Chapter is for Washington state to be a world leader in scientific excellence and innovation for the betterment of humanity. We are a thriving chapter of members who support research scholars at the University of Washington and Washington State University through well-funded fellowships.
ARCS Foundation's unrestricted three-year fellowships offer our scholars a competitive advantage, while also increasing equity by alleviating financial burdens to pursue STEM education and conduct research in Washington state. In 2022-23, Seattle Chapter gave nearly $1M to fund 157 ARCS Scholars at the University of Washington and Washington State University. ARCS Fellowships also offer these scholars unique opportunities for mentorship, networking, and advancement within ARCS Foundation's STEM-focused, philanthropic community.
