   First-time-ever APAO Young Ophthalmologists Travel Grant

To commemorate the 60th Anniversary of APAO, we are launching our first-ever Young Ophthalmologists Travel Grant to support young ophthalmologists in the Asia-Pacific region attending the Diamond-jubilee 35th APAO Congress. Each successful applicant will receive US$1000 if they live outside the host country of the Congress (i.e. China), whereas those who live in the host country will receive US$300. 

Priority will be given to Residents and Trainees from a developing country and whose presentations (free paper, poster or video) have been accepted by the Scientific Program Committee of the Congress. Identification letter from the training or program director for the Resident or Fellow must be produced should the applicant is selected for the grants. 

Interested delegates please complete the online application via the Congress System from September 2 to October 31, 2019. Selection results will be announced by January 2020.
