SOE will shortly announce Educational and Teacher grant winners for
2016. Over 220 applications arrived for 70 educational grants for
young ophthalmologists and the Education committee gave priority to those
that have been longer in training or to those that have not been
successful in previous applications. In addition, grants were
dispersed accross different training centres in a country.
The successful applicants will shortly receive their instruction
letters whilst those that have not been successful this year are
encouraged to apply again next year.
TEACHER GRANTS ALSO OFFERED, AIMED FOR SPECIALISTS IN TEACHING INSTITUTIONS
Besides Educational grants for young ophthalmologists, SOE also
offers 10 grants for specialists preferably in academic settings that
deal with developmental roles and education of residents. These grants
are either 2 or 4 weeks in duration. SOE encourages the specialists
that can devote some time from their busy schedule to apply for these
grants which aim to harmonize training and give opportunity for
networking among the training centres.
