Generously sponsored by

an-vision travel scholarship

In 2013, the ISVO – in partnership with Ingeborg Fromberg – initiated a travel scholarship program.  Since then, over 20 up-and-coming ophthalmologists have benefited from this generous sponsorship.  We have had scholars from 4 continents (see red pins on map) attend centers of excellence on 3 continents (see blue pins on map).

After a hiatus during the COVID pandemic, the ISVO is delighted to announce a reinvigoration of this program – again generously supported by an-vision. Starting in 2023, we will again be able to award 2-3 scholarships per year to deserving aspiring ophthalmology trainees all around the world to visit an international centre of ophthalmic excellence. The scholarship provides funding for tuition, travel, and subsistence costs up to $2500 USD per person. The one-month training is expected to be completed within 12 months of award of the scholarship.


Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists, each awardee will also receive a complimentary one-year subscription to the journal Veterinary Ophthalmology.

The scholarship is open to veterinarians who are not currently enrolled in an official ophthalmology training program and who are a member of the ISVO (regular or associate/organisational). A call comes out twice per year. The selection of the successful applicant will be made by members of the ISVO Executive Committee and any decision will be final. Previously-unsuccessful applicants are welcome to re–apply.
