International Scholarship Programme to attend the International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia


The purpose of the programme is to support the attendance of individuals who are most able to
transfer the skills and knowledge acquired there to the work they undertake in their own organizations and communities and who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend the conference.

The International Scholarship Programme is open to everyone around the world working or volunteering in the field of HIV and AIDS.

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, workshop or programme activity submission has been selected. Scholarship selection will be based on a non-biased scoring system established in advanced. A Scholarship Review Committee will contribute to the reviewing and scoring of the applications.

Although every attempt will be made to assist as many people as possible, we regret that there are only a limited number of international scholarships available.


  • The programme is open to everyone working or volunteering in the field of HIV in any country, including Australia.
