Fellow Lecturer Program

Since 2000 this program has sponsored over 100 trips - fostering optics programs and reaching students and scientists in over 43 economically emerging nations.

As travel is not currently possible due to the pandemic, the program has transitioned to a virtual format.

If you are a Fellow and are interested in presenting a virtual lecture please send a short description of your talk topic(s) to fellowtravel@optica.org.
