Optometrist Funding

Kentuckians interested in becoming optometrists may may now begin applying for the state’s Optometry Scholarship program, administered by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).“This scholarship will help future optometrists fulfill their dreams of being able to help those in need,” Gov. Andy Beshear said. “By making these funds available, our hope is the recipients will practice optometry in Kentucky, thereby giving more of their fellow Kentuckians an opportunity to access quality eye care.”The scholarship may be used at the Kentucky College of Optometry at the University of Pikeville.
