The Optometric Glaucoma Society (OGS) has established the Ezell Fellowship, dedicated to fund postgraduate research in glaucoma. The OGS is doing this in partnership with the American Optometric Foundation (AOF), an affiliate of the American Academy of Optometry (AAO).

The William C. Ezell Fellowship was established to encourage talented graduates of schools and colleges of optometry to pursue full-time careers in research and education, OGS says. The fellowship is for postgraduate students who are entering or continuing a full-time program of study and training in research that leads to a Masters or Ph.D. degree.

The OGS is reaching out to the optometry profession for support to endow this fellowship. Checks should be made to the American Optometric Foundation, specifying the OGS-Ezell Fund, and sent to the American Optometric Foundation, 6110 Executive Blvd., Suite 506, Rockville, MD 20852. All contributions are tax deductible.
