Alcon International Chapter Affiliates Matching Grants

ARVO Foundation for Eye Research, thanks to a grant from the Alcon Foundation, provides matching grants to the International Chapter Affiliates. These grants match the funds that ARVO provides to International Chapters each year. The matching grant funds will support educational programming at chapter affiliate meetings and events. A portion of the funds may also be used to support a travel grant to the ARVO Annual Meeting. The first matching grants were awarded in 2009.
