    The ICO Fellowships were organized to help promising young ophthalmologists, especially those from developing countries, improve their practical skills and broaden their perspectives of ophthalmology.

    Fellows are expected to bring the acquired knowledge and skills back to their country of origin and take part in programs to preserve and restore vision.

    The Fellowship duration is three months, but the program is intended to be flexible to meet the needs of different countries and individuals. The Fellowships are awarded twice a year, with application deadlines of March 31 and September 30.

    Each year, approximately 60 ICO Fellowships can be awarded. More than 350 Fellowships have been awarded since the program began in 2000.
