The American Optometric Foundation has selected 19 optometry studentsone from every college of optometry in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canadaas the 2008 class of AOF-Carl Zeiss Vision Fellows.
The fellowships honor outstanding achievement by third-year optometry students. Each fellowship includes a $5,000 award made directly to the financial aid office at the students college to offset the cost of his or her fourth year of optometric education.
As a leader in lenses, laboratory services, and equipment for the dispensary, Carl Zeiss Vision recognizes that excellence in eye care depends on excellence in the profession of optometry, says Fred Howard, Carl Zeiss Visions president-Americas. Thats why we are very proud to support future leaders of optometry through this fellowship program.
