About the Foundation

In keeping with its mission to promote the generation, application, archiving and worldwide dissemination of knowledge in optics and photonics, The Optical Society (OSA) established the OSA Foundation in 2002 to carry out a wide range of charitable activities.

The OSA Foundation is a non-profit organization that relies on the generous financial support of donors to help students as they move through advanced degree programs and become active members of research and engineering communities around the globe.  Foundation-sponsored travel grants, awards, and scholarships are just some of the ways donor contributions directly benefit these innovators and leaders of tomorrow.  Enabled by caring contributors like you, the Foundation also works to secure OSA Awards and Honors Program endowments.

As has been the case since the OSA Foundation's earliest days, every donation is matched 100% by The Optical Society's contributions to the OSA Foundation's General Fund. OSA's commitment to the Foundation and its matching program allows every gift to make twice the impact!
