Max Grace, a senior in Materials Science and Engineering, received the first ever Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS) fellowship awarded to an undergraduate for his research on room temperature deformation of alpha-titanium alloys. Max is working on this research with Dr. S. Ankem and graduate student Greg Oberson in the Materials Science and Engineering Department.

The ARCS Foundation is a national all-volunteer, all-women organization dedicated to providing scholarships to academically outstanding students pursuing degrees in certain fields of natural science, medicine and engineering.

The ARCS Foundation makes awards to 46 schools across the country, and in 2004-2005 the cumulative total since its founding grew to more than $53 million in scholarships to over 10,000 students.
