The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) works to advance research globally on the visual system and the prevention, treatment, and cures for ophthalmologic disorders.
To that end, ARVO welcomes applications for the Roche Collaborative Research Fellowship. Established in 2009, the fellowship pairs researchers from developing countries with established scientists to strengthen ophthalmic research capacities and, to that end, supports a one-year project that can include additional training in specialty equipment or research methodologies. Three fellowships of up to $10,000 each will be awarded to support the development of a new or an established (no more than a year old) collaborative research project between a researcher (applicant) and an established scientist (collaborator) of his/her choice.
To be eligible, applicants must be a current ARVO member.
See the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and information about previously supported fellowships.
