About the Award

This award is intended to inspire the 2023-2024 GPLI residency class to reflect on their residency using gas permeable lenses and what the GPLI organization and symposium means to them. One $2500 award will be awarded to a GPLI resident that attends the 2024 Global Specialty Lens Symposium. The gift is from former cornea and contact lens residents who have participated in the GPLI residency symposium and wish to “pay it forward.”

The submission window closes October 15, 2023.
