The American Optometric Association Foundation’s Endowment Fund Advisory Committee has announced its 2010 Scholarship Grant recipients. The AOA Foundation sponsors an annual essay contest for two separate and distinct national scholarship programs.
SCO student Jeremy Dell, '11, was selected for the $2,500 Dr. Seymour Galina Grant. This scholarship fund, one of the earliest endowed gifts to The AOA Foundation, was established through a bequest from the late Seymour Galina, OD, a long-time AOA member. The AOA Foundation invested the original gift and now uses the earnings to fund the $2,500 Dr. Seymour Galina Scholarship Grant in perpetuity.
“We are pleased that through these scholarships, The AOA Foundation can help students concentrate more on completing their optometric education than on their school debt,” said Martha Rosemore Greenberg, OD '74, president of The AOA Foundation.
Each accredited school or college of optometry was invited to submit one nominee for each scholarship topic. The submissions were evaluated and grant recipients were chosen by The AOA Foundation’s Endowment Fund Advisory Committee.
Dell is the son of Jamie and Rick Dell of Hixson, Tennessee. He is a 2007 graduate of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
