AOA/AOSA Opportunities in Optometry Grants

AOA-AOSA

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. 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.

Applications are now open until July 15, 2022

InfantSEE®

Due to the number of children with eye and vision problems across the United States, Optometry Cares – The AOA Foundation, and Johnson & Johnson Vision created InfantSEE®, a no-cost public health program developed to provide professional eye care for infants nationwide.
