Every summer, we award one or more medical students who have just completed their second year of medical school, with a $8,000.00 scholarship to spend the summer furthering their education in ophthalmic medicine, surgery and research.

The program consists of education and research experience in the diagnosis and management of eye disease. It is conducted at the Eye Associates with portions at various University of Toronto teaching hospitals, encompassing all sub-specialty areas in ophthalmology. Each student will become involved in at least one research project that is supported by the Foundation.

To date there have been 44 EFC Summer scholars since we began the program in 1991, two thirds of whom have gone on to careers in Ophthalmology.
