Boulter Fellowships

The BCPB's Boulter Fellowship Scheme was set up in 1982 to enable eye care professionals from the developing world to train in Britain and achieve the specialist skills needed in their country of origin.

The name Boulter refers to one of our most inspiring founders, Mr Eric Boulter, whose background included the American Foundation for Overseas Blind (now The Helen Keller Foundation) and who was later Director General of the RNIB. Eric knew what it was like to be blind through his own experience of being without sight since World War ll.

Each year, our funds allow us to support the training of a small number of applicants, who come to the International Centre for Eye Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to study for an MSc in Public Health for Eye Care. This course equips them with the skills and knowledge they will need to plan and implement national and regional blindness prevention programmes.


Dr. Tran Huy Hoang, 37, was a Boulter Fellow in 2006-7.

Dr Hoang (pictured top left) works at HCM City Eye Hospital, Vietnam in a clinic that provides free cataract surgery for people on low incomes. This clinic runs eye camps in the southern provinces of Vietnam. He is the key instructor in the cataract surgery training programme as well as the community eye care programme.
