PEDIATRIC OPHTHALMOLOGY GRANTS
Each year the Knights Templar Eye Foundation, Inc invites eligible investigators to submit applications for Pediatric Ophthalmology:
Career-Starter Research Grants - up to $60,000 per grant. Applicants for these Grants are at the beginning of their academic careers and must have received a M.D., Ph.D. or equivalent degree.
Competitive Renewal Grants - up to $60,000 per grant to extend the original grant project for one additional year if the data accumulated in the first 7 months of the original grant given the previous year are compelling.
Training Mentors for Developing Countries (TMDC) Fellowship - Annual stipend of $60,000 - The Scientific Advisory Committee for the Knight's Templar Eye Foundation has identified a significant need for well-trained pediatric ophthalmology faculty (mentors) in developing countries. As a result we have created a 1-year fellowship to help meet that training need. Those receiving have agreed in writing to return to their native country immediately following the fellowship to practice pediatric ophthalmology for a minimum of 5 years before emigrating and, to the extent possible, be directly involved in the training of residents during those 5 years.
Those receiving Career-Starter Research Grants for 2014 - 2015 are:
