CCLSA Research Awards: Apply Now

Applications are invited for the Cornea and Contact Lens Society Australia’s (CCLSA) 50th annual Research Awards.

Charles Di Natali, at that time a student at UNSW, was the first recipient of this highly recognised award for researchers in optometry and related fields.

Since then, CCLSA has presented awards totalling over AU$650,000 to more than 200 researchers, helping to enable awardees to pursue their optometric interests in pure and/or applied research and become leaders in the field.

The awards are named after Dorothy Carlborg, who was CEO of the CCLSA for nine years, during which time research formed a particular passion and focus for her.

“For the Dorothy Carlborg CCLSA research award program to now be in my name is of course an honour. I look forward to seeing how the award program continues to provide inspiration and to be able to personally acknowledge awardees having achieved exceptional outcomes,” Ms Carlborg said in a statement.

Successful applicants receive $3,500 (in two instalments) as a contribution towards their research, and a certificate of appreciation for their contribution to contact lens research and clinical practice.

Award recipients share their outcomes via publication of their research on the CCLSA website and in presentations at CCLSA state events, and at the flagship International Cornea & Contact Lens Congress (ICCLC).
