Scholarship Program to Give 40 Awards/Year

VSPGlobal_LogoVSP Global has partnered with the American Optometric Foundation to provide scholarships to students at every school and college of optometry in the United States. Continuing the scholarship support VSP has provided to optometry students for the past 10 years, the partnership will award scholarships to 40 students for a total of $160,000 annually. The awards now include a travel grant to attend the annual meeting of the American Academy of Optometry and a networking reception.

Each school of optometry will select two fourth-year students who are in the top half of their class academically, perform at or near the top of their class in clinical skills, and are preparing for a career in private-practice optometry.
