2021 Travel Grants

For ARVO 2021 virtual attendees 

ARVO and the ARVO Foundation are proud to provide young investigators with opportunities to present their work and build their networks with the financial support of a travel grant. Even in a fully virtual meeting, you can still apply for a travel grant to receive free meeting registration.  

Apply for a travel grant when you submit your abstract. The deadline for submission was Jan. 8.  

Travel grants cover meeting registration fees for all recipients for the ARVO 2021 Annual Meeting. Travel grants are provided to those whose research findings in the abstract are considered to be of high interest to the vision and ophthalmology research community. Recipients must have an accepted abstract for the 2021 ARVO Annual Meeting to be considered. 2021 travel grant recipients who participate in the meeting virtually will remain eligible to receive a travel grant to attend the meeting in person in future years.  

Travel grant recipients

If you were awarded a travel grant for 2021, and you have previously paid for attendee registration, a refund in the full amount will be processed by March 15, 2021. Nothing further is required on your part, and an ARVO representative will contact you if further information is needed.
