Hybrid Eye-CARE Summer Camp RSVP



The format will be hybrid, allowing participants to select either in person participation at the College or virtual participation via Zoom (although participants are strongly encouraged to pick one format for the entirety of the camp)

Over the course of a three-day summer program, Eye-CARE camp aims to prepare prospective applicants for the rigors of the optometry school application process and health professions programs more broadly. Eye-CARE will simultaneously expose participants to the dynamic future of the profession.

Please visit the Eye-CARE Summer Camp program website to learn more program details and specific dates/times at www.sunyopt.edu/eyecaresummercamp

Camp Participant Eligibility: All are welcome. General camp registration should be submitted through the form directly below by Friday, June 16th.

Access: Details will be sent to registrants closer to the date.

Eye-CARE Camp Resources

Although travel stipends and OAT resource bundles are limited and highly competitive, we encourage all eligible individuals to express consideration. If you are not awarded a travel stipend or OAT resource bundle, then you are still eligible to attend the summer camp either in person or virtually.

Travel Stipend Consideration: Participants who have demonstrated academic promise and who will benefit from a travel stipend may express interest for consideration toward a $400 travel stipend for summer camp travel to the state of New York in late June 2023.

Applications for travel stipend consideration should be submitted along with general camp registration through the form directly below by Friday, May 19th.

OAT resource bundle consideration: Participants who identify as underrepresented in optometry (URiO) or come from a low-income background (based on federal guidelines), and who are actively pursuing an optometry degree are eligible for consideration toward our OAT Resource Bundle.

Applications for the OAT resource bundle should be submitted here by Thursday, June 1st. Lastly, since general camp participation is required by those sponsored for an OAT resource package, please be sure to submit the general camp participation form directly below by Friday, June 16th.
