Opportunities in Optometry Grants
To promote diversity and equity in the optometric profession for generations to come, the American Optometric Association and the American Optometric Student Association have created the AOA/AOSA Opportunities in Optometry Grant program, which is supported by Optometry Cares. This fund is designed as a one-time stipend for under-represented minority students interested in the field of optometry to help defray costs associated with applying to optometry school. Learn more.
AOA/AOSA Opportunities in Optometry Grants represent a concerted effort to not only build diversity, equity and professional leadership for the next generation of optometry, but also ensure expanded access to primary eye care throughout America’s communities. Read more.
