Congratulations to MSTP V Jeremy Bancroft-Brown for receiving the Achievement Reward for College Scientists (ARCS) Scholarship, a competitive scholarship that rewards excellence in research. Jeremy is one of two BioE students receiving the award, and there are 10 ARCS Scholars at UCSF overall. The award provides scholars with a stipend for the 2016-17 academic year.
Outstanding student candidates for ARCS Foundation Awards are recommended by the deans and department chairs of their respective institutions. Final selection of ARCS Foundation Scholars is determined over the spring by the recipient institutions. All award recipients must be United States citizens, have high scholastic standing and academically compelling research, demonstrate real financial need, and express the goal of making a contribution to their communities and society in general. Scholars are selected without regard to race, gender or religious preference.
Be sure to congratulate Jeremy the next time you see him!
