ICO Fellowships Program

The International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) Fellowships Program was organized to help promising young ophthalmologists from low-resources countries improve their practical skills and broaden their perspectives of ophthalmology.  Fellows are expected to bring the acquired knowledge and skills back to their home countries and take part in programs to preserve vision and prevent blindness. For the ICO-Allergan Advanced Research Fellowship we encourage applicants from all countries.

The ICO gratefully recognizes grants, gifts, and pledges to the ICO Fellowships Program. Support ICO Fellowships by contributing to the ICO, ICOFoundation, or the International Ophthalmological Fellowship Foundation (IOFF).  The IOFF was formed in Germany to support the fellowships.
