“The 2009 ARCS Scholar Award allowed me to pay bills and living expenses so that I could cut down hours working at a restaurant to focus on my PhD research,” says the assistant professor in George Mason University’s Department of Environmental Science and Policy. She specializes in environmental microbiology, marine biology and coral reef ecology.

"I am proud to be an ARCS Scholar. The 1985, 1987 and 1988 ARCS Scholar Awards were critically important to my graduate education. Without this funding, I would have had to incur significant student loan debt," says the founder and director of the National Tropical Botanical Garden's Breadfruit Institute. "Thank you for all the incredible support for students in science. We need to support science now more than ever. "
