AESC New Member Travel Grants


The Trustees of the American Eye Study Club recognize the critical importance new members bring to the vitality of the organization.  Lectures and participation in discussion by younger ophthalmologists helps to keep the educational sessions on the cutting edge of medical and surgical thought, as well as revealing new ideas and approaches to patient care.  

In order to help foster the involvement of young ophthalmologists in educational and scientific mission of the Club, the Trustees of the AESC Foundation have approved the award of a $1,000 grant to each new member attending their first annual meeting.

To apply for the grant, new members are requested to complete our APPLICATION FORM ("fillable" PDF file)

Return the form to the AESC Foundation office . . .

     Mail:    10 W. Phillip Rd., Suite 120; Vernon Hills, IL  60061-1730

While the Trustees completely expect to disburse these funds to new members attending their first meeting, we realize that some may not need or want financial support.  If that is the case, a member may decline the grant, or you may donate it back to the Foundation.  This is completely optional; there's no pressure to turn back or decline these funds.  If you wish to re-donate the funds, please contact the AESC administrative office for instructions.

We certainly hope that in the future, you will feel strongly about the organization and will be inclined to help the Foundation grow.  In the meantime, welcome to the American Eye Study Club!
