Scholarship applications are now closed.
Scholarships will be offered to people from a variety of backgrounds, including those who are submitting abstracts, skills building session proposals and programme activities proposals (Global Village, Cultural Programme or Youth Programme). A number of applicants who are not submitting directly to the conference programme, as well as media representatives will also be granted scholarships.
Types of Support
Applicants can request a full or partial scholarship.
A full scholarship includes:
- registration to the conference;
- economy-class return airfare;
- shared accommodation in a budget hotel;
- modest daily allowance.
A partial scholarship includes any combination of the above.
Applications are open to anyone who is working in the field of HIV/AIDS.
Most of the questions asked on the application form are related to personal details and work experience. There are also four essay-type questions which ask for further details regarding the applicant’s organization, occupation or involvement in HIV/AIDS, motivation to attend the conference and how the applicant’s organization or community would benefit from the scholarship.
Media scholarship applicants will also be asked to provide media accreditation and supporting documents. No media application will be accepted without submission of the required supporting documents.
