Alumni Association Scholarship
Because there is no better feeling than helping a student succeed.
You are invited to participate in an exciting new way to help support an ICO student!
ICO’s Alumni Council has initiated an Alumni Association Scholarship to help offset the financial burden a 4th year student faces upon graduating and to acknowledge the student’s service to ICO.
Because all ICO alumni are members of the Alumni Association, and there are currently no membership dues, please consider supporting the Alumni Association Scholarship today.
Your donation is100% tax deductible.
About the Scholarship
- The candidate shall be a full time student at the Illinois College of Optometry and enrolled in his/her 4th year.
- The candidate shall demonstrate financial need and be in good academic standing.
- The candidate shall complete a 500 word essay describing his/her past and present role serving ICO as a student as well as plans to further that service as an alumnus.
One recipient will be selected per year. However, if additional funds are available, the Alumni Council reserves the right to consider awarding more than one scholarship in any given year. A Scholarship and Awards Committee shall determine the top three candidates based on the above criteria. The essays of those top candidates will be forwarded to the Alumni Council members for final selection. The scholarship will be presented at the Capstone Program held during graduation week each May.

May 19, 2011 (CHICAGO) —The Illinois College of Optometry is proud to announce that Charles F. Mullen, OD, who served as president of the institution from 1996 until 2002, will be the keynote speaker at the 2011 ICO Commencement Ceremony to be held at 11:00 a.m., May 21, at Rockefeller Chapel. Dr. Mullen also will receive the honorary degree, Doctor of Science in Optometry, in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the profession of optometry.
Dr. Mullen has served the profession with great distinction since earning his doctor of optometry degree in 1969 from the New England College of Optometry. He has tirelessly advocated for the interdisciplinary approach to clinical education and patient care, and he successfully led the initiative to certify the first American optometrists in the use of pharmaceutical agents.
Under his leadership at ICO, Dr. Mullen increased the College’s externship sites from 9 to 144, significantly improved students’ performance on national board examinations, affiliated ICO with the University of Chicago, and developed and implemented a performance-based strategic plan that positioned ICO for future success.
Dr. Mullen has received more than 30 prestigious honors and awards, including being inducted into the National Optometry Hall of Fame for lifetime contributions to the profession. Dr. Mullen serves on the boards of NECO and the Blind and Vision Rehabilitation Services of Pittsburgh and has previously served as chair of the board of directors at the New England Eye Institute.
