New Opportunity - $500 Travel Stipend 

The Dr. Harry Zeltzer Travel Stipend

Interested in organizing your first VOSH trip? VOSH-ONE would love to support you! We are now
offering $500 travel stipends to VOSH-ONE members who are organizing their first VOSH-ONE trip.

VOSH missions can be very rewarding, but organizing a mission is not an easy task to undertake. VOSH-ONE would like to encourage and support new VOSH trip leaders by offering a $500 travel stipend to VOSH-ONE members who are planning their first eyecare mission. Recipients of the travel stipend will be paired with an experienced VOSH-ONE member who will act as a mentor to support the recipient during their trip planning process. VOSH-ONE hopes that this small stipend and mentorship will help ease the burden of planning a first trip.

Note: Whether you qualify for the VOSH-ONE stipend or not, VOSH-ONE is here to help support you in planning any of your eyecare missions. Please reach out to us if you would like to be paired with a mentor or if you have any questions.
