North Carolina provides funding for residents of the state pursuing doctor of optometry degrees at four out of state campuses through the North Carolina Optometry Scholarship Loan (OSL) program. North Carolina residents selected for the program receive significant funding to attend one of four participating institutions: Pennsylvania College of Optometry, Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN, the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the University of Houston. The awards are renewable for up to four years.

Recipients must commit to work as optometrists in North Carolina for one year for each year funding is received to repay the loan. Students who do not fulfill the obligation are required to repay the funds at an annual interest rate of 10%.

Representatives of the four participating optometry campuses will be present to answer questions about admissions, optometry careers and their respective doctoral programs in optometry. Literature on the OSL and other programs to financially assist North Carolina residents who attend these out- of-state institutions to earn optometry degrees will also be available. These sessions are open to the public, and anyone considering a career in optometry is invited to attend one of these meetings.
