ISVO An-Vision Travel Scholarship 2024

ISVO An-Vision Travel Scholarship 2024

We are happy to share the details below regarding call for applications for the first round of 2024
ISVO-an-vision Travel Scholarship. Please forward the  announcement below to others who may be eligible/interested.

Thanks to the enduring and generous support of an-vision, we are thrilled to invite ISVO members (individual or institutional) to apply for a Travel Scholarship. The scholarship provides financial aid up to $2500 USD intended to support the scholar to visit a center of excellence in Veterinary Ophthalmology. The one-month experience is expected to be completed within 12 months of award of the scholarship. The awardee will also receive a complimentary one-year subscription to the journal Veterinary Ophthalmology, generously donated by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists.

We encourage applicants to contact prospective facilities to discuss their availability to host a travelling scholar, and – while any ISVO member that is not already in an ophthalmology training program is welcome to apply – successful applicants have tended to be those who would otherwise lack access to advanced practices in the field. We hope that the scholarship will facilitate professional connections that might not otherwise be possible. More background on the scholarship can be found at https://isvo.org/an-vision-travel-scholarship/. Prior individuals who have been awarded this scholarship, and their stories can be found at https://isvo.org/success-stories/.

The deadline for application for scholarship  is May 21st.

Applications should include:

  1. A full curriculum vitae
  2. A plan of the study to be undertaken, including a short statement

justifying the need for funding

  1. A letter from the ophthalmologist at the host institution

supporting your application

Selection of the successful applicant will be made by members of the ISVO Executive Committee and any decision will be final. A one-page report detailing what has been learned during the externship and your future goals is expected within one month of completing the externship. Previously-unsuccessful applicants are welcome to re–apply.

Kind regards,

 Your ISVO Scholarship Committee
