Program Overview

The Graduate Center for Vision Research at the SUNY College of Optometry is seeking applicants for its summer research program supported by a T35 Training Grant from the National Eye Institute. The program is designed to introduce optometry students to basic, translational, and clinical vision research and the critical thinking and problem-solving skills essential not only to research, but also to improved clinical practice and patient care.  If you are an optometry student with a potential interest in research, you are strongly encouraged to apply.  Prior research experience is not required. Optometry students who participate in the program will receive a stipend of $4,967 for a full-time, ten-week summer commitment (June 4 to August 10) and up to $875 for research-related expenses.  There are 8 trainee slots open to students who are enrolled in an accredited optometry program.  In addition, U.S. citizenship or permanent residency is required.  Students from underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply.  Our Office of Student Affairs will assist students in finding summer housing.
