We understand and encourage continued education, especially in an area you may have a special interest in. However we also know there often tend to be many costs involved (accommodation, travel, time off work etc.).
The Young Optometrist NSW/ACT (YO NSW/ACT) Scholarship is a self-funded initiative that assists members with continued professional development via educational short courses, workshops and conferences. The intent of these scholarships and placement opportunities is to allow professionals to explore avenues of optometry that may be inside or outside their scope of practice. This is to enable them to become better practitioners and to advance their careers.
Whilst YO NSW/ACT encourages applicants to consider applying in areas of practice that may be outside their comfort zone, please be aware that we expect recipients to implement this new knowledge into practice.
