Scholarship programme

The Scholarship Programme is open to everyone around the world working or volunteering in the field of HIV and AIDS who are at least 16 years of age at the time of the conference. The programme provides financial assistance to help people who would otherwise be unable to benefit from the conference.

Priority will be given to those whose participation will help enhance their work in their own communities, to those who are able to assist in the transfer of skills and knowledge acquired at the conference, and to those whose abstract submission has been selected. Scholarship selection will be based on a non-biased scoring system. Various committees will contribute to the reviewing and scoring of the applications.

Even though every attempt will be made to assist as many applicants as possible, we regret that there will be only a limited quantity of scholarships available. Applicants are therefore strongly encouraged to seek other funding as well.


Media scholarship programme

A limited number of scholarships will also be available for media representatives from around the world. Media scholarship applicants will be asked to provide media accreditation and supporting documents.


Type of support

Scholarship applicants will be able to request a full or partial scholarship.

A full scholarship may include:

  • Registration fee for the conference (include access to all sessions and exhibitions);
  • Travel (pre-paid airfare at the lowest fare available, from the nearest international airport);
  • Accommodation (shared in a budget hotel or dorm for the days of the conference);
  • Modest daily living allowance for the duration of the conference (23-26 July 2017).

A partial scholarship includes any combination of the above.
