AIDS 2016 Scholarship Program to attend the 21st International AIDS Conference in Durban, South Africa.

Application Deadline: 12 February 2016, 23:59 CET.

The purpose of the programme is to support the attendance of individuals who intend to disseminate the information and skills acquired at AIDS 2016 to their organizations and communities and who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend the conference. People openly living with HIV and/or who belong to a community that is disproportionately affected by HIV are strongly encouraged to apply.
As only a limited number of scholarships are available and the demand is so high, it is strongly recommended you also seek funding from other sources.
Eligibility Requirements:
  • The programme is open to everyone working or volunteering in the field of HIV in any country, including South Africa.
  • You must be at least 16 years of age at the time of the conference (that is, turn 16 on or before 18 July 2016) to apply for a scholarship.

  • Application forms must be completed in English. The official language of the conference is English.
  • All applicants must submit a letter of recommendation from a manager, colleague or peer through the upload function BEFORE the deadline of 12 February 2016, 23:59 CET. If this document is not submitted, your application will not be considered

Application Process:

Application deadline: 12 February 2016, 23: 59 CET. Applications will not be accepted after this date.
• You must complete the online application form only once. A confirmation number will
appear on the screen automatically after your application has been submitted.
