In 1974, ARCS Foundation Los Angeles charter member Barbara Pauley invited prominent Honolulu women to the family's Honolulu property on the interior of Coconut Island in Kane‘ohe Bay to encourage establshment of a chapter in the islands. (Mrs. Pauley Pagen and her son later dontated the property to the University of Hawai‘i to expand facilities of the Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology in recognition of the friendly relationship her first husband, oilman Edwin Pauley, maintained with University of Hawai‘i scientists who worked ont he state-held perimeter of the island.)
Half a century later, ARCS Foundation Honolulu Chapter has provided more than $2 million in ARCS Scholar grants to 600+ outstanding UH Manoa graduate students.
Chapter members return to the island for a 50th anniversary field trip on Monday, Jan. 29 to meet recent ARCS scholars, tour HIMB facilities and enjoy a picnic lunch.
The field trip is a members-only event with limited space. Local ARCS chapter members can register on the Honolulu ARCS website. Visiting ARCS Foundation National Board members can register as part of the January 2024 National Board Meeting Registration with round-trip transportation from the hotel included.
