MWC Community Partners

Thanks to the generosity of our corporate, foundation and individual donors, ARCS is empowering students to pursue their academic dreams.  Each scholar award provides critical and flexible resources for our merit-based recipients to address their needs, including:     

  •      Gap Funding – to cover costs associated with specific research projects
  •      Investigative Funding – to explore new research initiatives
  •      Survival Funding – to meet basic funding requirements

Since inception, ARCS/MWC has donated over $7 million to our partner universities and supported more than 600 scholars.  This record of achievement could not have been achieved and sustained without the ongoing partnership with our donors. 

On behalf of all members of ARCS/MWC, we are very appreciative of this valued relationship.  We are proud to recognize our donor partners.
