New Fellowships Support Under-Represented Minorities in Glaucoma Research
The Glaucoma Foundation and Research to Prevent Blindness have partnered to provide five fellowships in 2021 to increase innovation and diversity in glaucoma research.
The Glaucoma Foundation (TGF) and Research to Prevent Blindness (RPB) have partnered to launch a new grant aimed at supporting under-represented racial and ethnic minority researchers in the pursuit of glaucoma research. The TGF (sponsored by Patricia Hill) / RPB Fellowships in Glaucoma provide one-year, $10,000 fellowships focused on substantive glaucoma research, including investigation into the etiology, diagnosis and/or treatment of glaucoma, to current ophthalmology fellows with an MD, MD/PhD, PhD or other relevant degree.
