SCO is proud to sponsor SECO Day each fall for students on the SCO campus. During SECO Day, SECO's President or President-Elect is invited to visit campus to speak to students and faculty about the importance of involvement with professional organizations such as SECO International, LLC.
In recent years, SECO's President Elect has presented a check to a fund that enables students to attend the SECO Congress in Atlanta.
Southern College of Optometry is also privileged to award two Southern Council of Optometrists Endowed Scholarships totaling $12,000 to students residing in a Southern Council member state. Selections are based upon competitive GPA, OAT scores, applicant interviews and extracurricular activities. These students must maintain a 3.0 GPA while enrolled at SCO.
