Current Programs & Funds
OSA Foundation donors inspire young minds, support today's optics and photonics students, and recognize excellence. Our programs are created and funded by the generosity of individuals and companies within the community.
Without your donations, we cannot do the important work and have the impact we do.
The OSA Foundation’s Annual Fund supports our impactful programs designed to inspire the next generation of scientists. 100% of donor funds are currently used for program support, not administrative expenses.
The Siegman International School on Lasers brings together up to 100 of the world’s brightest graduate students each year to learn from academic and industry leaders.
This program will honor the legacy of Thomas F. Deutsch and his work in Biomedical optics. Each year, one young professional will be selected for a Fellowship at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine in Boston, MA, USA.
