ARCS National Board of Directors and Officers announced the new slate joining President Caron Ogg to uphold ARCS vital commitment to advance science and technology in the United States.
Since its inception in 1958, ARCS has provided more than $120 million in academic achievement awards to more than 10,900 scholars to help continue their education and research in STEM fields.
ARCS Foundation Scholars have produced thousands of research publications and patents, secured billions in grant funding, started science-related companies, and played a significant role in teaching and mentoring young people in the STEM pipeline.
ARCS President Caron Ogg says the new board members will set a course for success for ARCS. “The new National Board Members have an enormous task ahead of them—one they are willing to take on for the sake of US scientific innovation,” Ogg says. “I am proud to be working alongside these women who bring passion and dedication to promote STEM education across the United States. Their work in ARCS will aid US economic growth and technological competitiveness—and ensure US leadership in global scientific advancements, health, and quality of life.”
ARCS Foundation National Board Members will introduce a new task force this year focused on creating diversity, equality, and inclusion within the organization. ARCS members will be meeting with a multitude of constituencies, including ARCS academic partners, to spark in-depth discussions on the topic.
