Alumni Association Scholarships

When the Alumni Association merged with the Optometric Center of New York, we established an endowed scholarship that provides critical funding to an average of 3 students per year. Each year, a member of the Alumni Association is invited to present the scholarships to the students at our annual Scholarship Reception. Alumni may donate to this fund to help increase the support available to help students.

Alumni Events and Photos

The Office of Alumni Affairs and the Alumni Association host several events each year including Reunion, Receptions at Academy and Optometry’s Meeting, and other smaller meet-up sessions. These events and their registration pages are listed in the Alumni Events Calendar. Photos from past events can be found under Photo Albums in SUNY Eye Network.
