CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF STEM SUPPORT

Fifty years ago, on October 22, 1970, ARCS Foundation Northern California Chapter was established, and we began our work of raising funds for STEM scholars at select Northern California universities. ARCS Scholar Awards have made a difference in the lives of thousands of appreciative scholars, and we hope to support the Minds of the Future for decades to come.

Since 1970, the Northern California Chapter has funded more than 2,800 ARCS Scholar Awards totaling over $22.6M. In 2020 the organization provided over $1M to 79 scholars at six outstanding universities in Northern California. Our goal for this year is to continue supporting exceptional STEM scholars with more than $1M – despite the pandemic.

“We need to support science as if our lives depend on it – because today they do.” -Kendra Kramlich, ARCS Northern California Member
