The Ohio Affiliate of Prevent Blindness is accepting applications for its 2017 Young Investigator Student Fellowship Awards for Female Scholars in Vision Research. The Fellowship Program is designed to provide support for outstanding female scientists committed to pursuing biomedical, behavioral, or clinical research careers relevant to the mission of Prevent Blindness–to prevent blindness and preserve sight.
Applicants must be post-baccalaureate students enrolled in a masters or doctorate program, female citizens or permanent residents of the United States, and conducting their research with a recognized academic institution in the State of Ohio.
Awards will range from $3,000-$5,000 for research being conducted during the summer of 2017. The deadline for completing applications is Wednesday, February 15, 2017.
Prevent Blindness will give preference to fellowship applications which investigate public health issues related to the burden of eye-related health and safety topics. Applications from diverse fields in the health sciences including, but not limited to ophthalmology, optometry, nursing, genetics, public health, nutrition, gerontology, and bioengineering, are appropriate to the goals of this fellowship award.
