Collaborative Research Fellowships

To promote international scientific interactions and innovative research, the ARVO Foundation for Eye Research established Collaborative Research Fellowships in 2009. This fellowship pairs researchers from developing countries with U.S. scientists to strengthen ophthalmic research capacities. It supports a one-year project, which can include additional training in specialty equipment or research methodologies. Two fellowships will be awarded, supported by Pfizer through grants to the ARVO Foundation. View previous fellowship recipients.
