Establish a Named Scholar Award

Advancing Science and Opening Doors to Scientific Achievement

Every year companies, foundations and individuals choose to fund a designated (named) ARCS Scholar Award. 

A $10,000 gift establishes a designated Scholar Award for one academic year.  A designated Scholar Award can be shared by pooling donations from two donors.

Reasons to designate a Scholar Award

  • To recognize a company or a group, or to honor someone special
  • To establish a direct connection with a scholar 
  • To increase the greater Bay Area’s innovativeness and competitiveness by attracting and retaining top scholars to the region and supporting leading research faculty professors to assemble the best research teams





How scholars are matched with a designated award:



Note that ARCS Scholars have full discretion regarding how to use their scholar funds.

Establish your designated Scholar Award online today with a gift of $10,000 or more and click the box after "check out" that you'd like to be contacted to discuss designation details. Or contact the ARCS NCC Development Director directly at
