The Program will offer a 3-month fellowship (clinical or research) for young Iranian ophthalmologists. The fellowship will be organized by the ICO under the auspices of the ICO Fellowships Program.
A public tender will be published annually on the occasion of Chams Festival on Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences and made available to potentially interested Iranian fellows by the Farabi Eye Hospital. The selection of the fellow will be exercised by a jury consisting of members of the Farabi Eye Hospital in Tehran.
Young ophthalmologists seeking to gain this grant are supposed to participate in the annual competition of Shams Festival on Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. The winner of "Young Scholar in Ophthalmology Award" would be granted with the ICO Fellowship.
