Since the ICO Fellowships began 15 years ago, 928 ICO Fellows from 83 low-resource countries have trained at internationally recognized teaching institutions in 24 subspecialties. ICO Fellows return to their home countries and participate in programs to preserve vision and prevent blindness.

Application deadlines for three-month and six months ICO Fellowships are March 31 and September 30 of each year, and the application deadline for 12-month (one-year) Fellowships is September 30 of each year.

Candidates who have passed one or more of the ICO Examinations and/or those who are from countries with ophthalmologic societies that are Members of the ICO are given special consideration for ICO Fellowships. Starting the application process four to five months before the deadline is recommended. For detailed information about ICO Fellowships, see:
