Fight for Sight and NANOS Change Deadline for 2015 Grant Submission
Since 2010, Fight for Sight (FFS) and the North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society (NANOS) have jointly funded a Fight for Sight/NANOS Summer Student Fellowship for neurology or ophthalmology residents and fellows pursuing academic research in neuro-ophthalmology. After discussion between the two organizations, the application deadline has been changed to September 1, 2015 to better accommodate the schedules of residents and fellows in their new medical settings. The application is completed on-line and may be accessed through the following link: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ffs2015. The winner will be notified in October.
This joint award includes a $3,000 research stipend from FFS, accompanied by a $1,500 travel grant from NANOS, for the grant recipient to present a research paper based on their funded work at the NANOS annual meeting . The travel grant is contingent upon presentation as either a platform or poster presentation.
For more information, please contact Arthur Makar, Fight for Sight's Executive Director at 212-679-6060 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
