Tampa-based optometric practice looks to support the future generation of leaders with a $1,000 fund to any current or upcoming college student

Tampa-based optometric practice, True Eye Experts, is proud to announce the launch of an annual college scholarship fund. As active participants in the community, the award-winning clinic is proud to be a part of a student’s successful future by lessening the financial burden of higher education.

High school seniors and current college undergraduates are encouraged to apply, regardless of academic standing or socioeconomic status. Applicants must write an essay explaining, “What’s your vision for the future and how will your college experience play a role in your impact?” Students must answer in 500 words or less. The True Eye Experts Scholarship looks to support young visionaries to create the change they wish to see in the world.

“As optometrists we know that much of what students learn comes from what they see, but what is evident is the vision that many of today’s young students have for the future,” said Samuel Teske, O.D. “We are proud to shine a spotlight on exceptional students through the True Eye Experts Scholarship, and offer an opportunity to help support their transition to a new institution and a meaningful career.”

The True Eye Experts Scholarship is now open for submissions on its website, Eligible applicants must be U.S. residents currently attending or planning to attend a U.S.-based college or university in the Fall of 2021. Applications will be accepted until March 31, 2021. A private panel will review applications and announce its recipient the first week of May 2021.
