The grant is open to all students at the schools and colleges of optometry. Students do not need to be an OPTOMETRY JUMPSTART® member to be eligible for a travel grant. Travel grant winners are determined through a contest in which the American Optometric Student Association (AOSA) judges the submissions and determines the travel grant winners.
