Basu, Bilbao, and Schrock Named ARCS Scholars

The Lubbock Chapter of the Achievement Rewards for College Students (ARCS) has selected Avik Basu and Alejandro Bilbao, mechanical engineering doctoral students, and James A. Schrock, an electrical engineering doctoral student, as ARCS Scholars for the 2014-2015 year. They will be honored at an event on Oct. 28.

The Lubbock chapter was founded in 1972. The ARCS Foundation is dedicated to helping meet the country's need for scientists and engineers by providing scholarships to academically outstanding students who are United States citizens in need of financial assistance to complete their higher education, thereby contributing not only to the advancement of science, but also to the material and intellectual welfare of all people.
