ARCS® Foundation Utah is currently funding our first students, so we have no graduates of our own yet. However, we are very fortunate to have two “adopted alums” who were ARCS Scholars in Colorado and Arizona and are currently working at the University of Utah. These two “adopted ARCS Scholars” are spotlighted on Research and Accolades.
ARCS Scholar Alums
If you are an ARCS Scholar alum from one of the other 16 ARCS Foundation Chapters throughout the country and are currently living in Utah, we would like to hear from you.
To notify the Utah Chapter that you are in the area, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to invite you to affiliate with our Utah Chapter and attend our special events.
Shannon Hanson, Scholar Award 2010
“Being an ARCS scholar allowed me to choose my own project instead of taking on whatever project had funding, so I chose to continue working towards creating a more sustainable concrete infrastructure."
Joshua Sewell, Dr. Stacy K. Firth Award 2010
“I am grateful to the ARCS program for the motivation that it has given me to achieve my goals. I have always been a motivated person in all that I do, but being an ARCS scholar has made me strive harder, and study harder to achieve my goals. I believe that the advancement of science and engineering in our country is so important ,and I hope to make contributions to that advancement in the future.”
Nicholas Nolta, James Lee Sorenson Award 2010
“The ARCS scholarship helped me in three major ways. First, it has removed from me a major stressor for a lot of graduate students: money. Second, for lack of a better word, the ARCS scholarship has flattered me. It is a subtle psychological thing, but it has definitely changed the expectations I have for myself. Finally, connecting with you, Dr. Foxley, has been extremely helpful…having another person in my life who cares and understands how I’m doing, which have all made my first year even more successful.”
