Antoinette M. Molinari Memorial Scholarship
The Antoinette M. Molinari Scholarship was established to assist an exceptional student who has extraordinary financial needs and, as such, would have difficulty meeting the financial requirements of attending optometry school. Financial need is a major criteria for selection, but academic and leadership potential are also important considerations.
One scholarship of $7,000 will be awarded for the academic year. The award is made to the institution, who credits the scholarship to the student. The scholarship rotates among the North American schools and colleges of optometry. To see if your school is eligible for this year, review the list below.
Deadline: June 15, 2016
Eligible applicants must be pursuing a Doctorate of Optometry degree through a full-time course of study and maintain a grade point average of 3.5 (4 point scale) or higher for all course work taken thus far in optometry school. Students must currently hold a first to third year student status during the open application period and be a student member of the American Academy of Optometry (AAO). This scholarship is not open to residents, post-doctoral applicants or pre-Optometry students.
