Student awards

The awards listed below have been made available through endowments and gifts from the generosity of alumni and friends of the School of Optometry and Vision Science.

Decisions of awards are made by the School Scholarship Committee. For many awards in Optometry, the recipient is chosen by default based on academic performance.

The majority of the awards are presented in June with the summer research awards distributed during the summer.

Students should note that awards might offset any loans or grants. Awards may be taxable.
