The American Academy of Optometry has received a grant from Allergan to award travel fellowships for students to attend Academy 2012 Phoenix in October.

Graduating students interested in receiving this award should turn in the application along with their current Curriculum Vitae and the required 300 to 500 word essay on dry eyes and allergies. The Disease Resident Travel Fellowship checks will be awarded at a breakfast sponsored by Allergen during Academy 2012 Phoenix on Saturday, October 27, 2012. The application notes that priority for the Travel Fellowship will be for applicants who have a paper or poster selected by the Residents Day Committee for Academy 2012 Phoenix.
