The purpose of the programme is to support the attendance of people who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend the conference.
The conference organizers are committed to making AIDS accessible to people from resource-limited settings and communities, researchers, young people, community activists and civil society representatives.
Scholarships provide financial assistance to a number of people from resource-limited settings and communities, key affected populations, people living with HIV, young people, researchers and students to help them attend the conference.
The International Scholarship Programme is open to everyone around the world.
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 (Global Village or Youth Programme) submission has been selected.
Scholarship selection is made based on a non-biased scoring system established in advanced.
The International Scholarship Programme is open to everyone working or volunteering in the HIV/AIDS field in any country, including Austria.
You must be at least 16 years of age at the time of the conference (that is, turn 16 on or before 18 July) to apply for a scholarship.
