Dr. Seymour Galina Scholarship

One of the earliest endowed gifts to Optometry Cares – The AOA Foundation was a scholarship fund established through a bequest from the late Seymour Galina, O.D., long-time AOA member. The Foundation manages the endowment by investing the original gift and then using the earnings to fund the Dr. Seymour Galina Scholarship Grant in perpetuity.  

Dr. Galina and his family continue to be remembered for his generous love of the profession through this $2,500 scholarship, which will be awarded to one optometry student who has successfully completed the following criteria and whose paper is judged to be the best essay submitted to Optometry Cares – The AOA Foundation.
