Annual Student Scholarship Competition Returns

Walmart-logoIt’s time to start thinking about the 2016-2017 Walmart and Sam’s Club Health and Wellness optometry scholarship competition, Project Foresight. Project Foresight is a national student competition that highlights the vision of Walmart and Sam’s Club Health and Wellness to provide quality, affordable, accessible health care for everyone. This year’s contestants will present on how they envision the future of the Walmart/optometry partnership.

Project Foresight is open to all students at ASCO member institutions who are first- through third-year students during the 2016-2017 academic year. Via a process that begins soon, eight two-member teams are selected to compete in the final round of the contest, which will take place during Optometry’s Meeting in Washington, D.C., in June 2017. Each team selected for the final round receives a team scholarship of $1,500 and a $1,500 grant for traveling to the competition. The winner of the national contest receives a $15,000 team scholarship and traveling trophy. The runner-up receives a $5,000 team scholarship.
