Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to fish and you feed them for a lifetime.

ARCS believes that one of the best “fishing rods” we can provide our students is an internship that changes their life.

The Fishing Rod Program combines individual donations, often at $100 each, for a greater impact. Once the total reaches the qualifying amount, a student secures an internship with an ARCS partner. We invite you to contribute toward one of these internships.

Every contribution makes a measurable difference in a student’s life and in ARCS’ mission to provide research opportunities to underserved and underrepresented students.

Each student you support will email updates with photos about their internship experience and how it is enriching their lives. You’ll be able to revel in their success and share your call to action with friends, family, and colleagues to create a domino effect of giving support.

Your donation of $100 is tax deductible. As a token of appreciation, you will be gifted a fishing rod that an ARCS student made using generative design (3D printing + AI to design and manufacture the rod).
