The Victoria Cohen Eye Cancer Charitable Trust to offer US$25,000 scholarship per annum in support of fellowships. Applications for 2022 naw open

The Victoria Cohen Eye Cancer Charitable Trust (VCECCT) is now open for applications from aspiring ocular oncologists in need of financial support for their training and education.

One award of US$25,000 is made each year to support someone applying for, or currently undertaking, an ocular oncology fellowship anywhere in the world.

The Victoria Cohen Scholarship is awarded to the most -deserving applicant, as determined by the charity’s expert judging panel of international ocular oncologists.

The deadline for applications is 31st March 2022. The successful applicant will be informed of their award on 1st July 2022.

The Victoria Cohen Eye Cancer Charitable Trust was set up in memory of the late Vicky Cohen, an internationally renowned eye cancer specialist, who sadly passed away in 2020.

Eye cancer is a terrible disease which affects the lives, eyes, and vision of thousands of people each year.

There are not enough eye cancer surgeons in the world. lt takes many years to become an eye specialist, yet not all those with the ability and aspiration to become an ocular oncologist have the means to support themselves through their training.

The VCECCT helps to identify the Vicky Cohens of tomorrow and to support them financially th rough their fellowship.

Full details about the scholarship and how to apply are available at www.vcecct.org
