AIDS 2018 Scholarship Programme

Through the Scholarship Programme, the conference organizers commit to make the AIDS 2018 conference accessible to people from resource-limited settings, researchers, young people, key and vulnerable populations and community representatives.

International Scholarship Programme

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

Priority is given to:

  • Those whose participation will help enhance their work in their own communities
  • Those who are able to assist in the transfer of skills and knowledge acquired at the conference
  • Those whose abstract, workshop or Global Village and Youth activity has been selected.

The conference secretariat offers a free Abstract Mentor Programme for young or less experienced researchers to benefit from expert mentoring. Learn more and submit your draft abstract today.

Scholarship selection is based on a non-biased scoring system. A Scholarship Review Committee (SRC) contributes to the reviewing and scoring of the applications.

Only a limited number of scholarships is available, and applicants are strongly encouraged to seek other/additional funding sources. You can apply for an international scholarship here.

Media Scholarship Programme

A limited number of scholarships will also be available for media representatives. Media scholarship applicants are asked to provide media accreditation and supporting documents such as samples of their work and a letter from their editor. You can apply for a media scholarship here.

Type of support

Scholarship applicants are able to request a full or partial scholarship.

  • A full scholarship includes:
    • Registration fee for the conference (includes access to all sessions and exhibitions).
    • Travel(pre-paid airfare at the lowest fare available, from the nearest international airport).
    • Accommodation (shared room in a budget hotel for the days of the conference only).
    • Modest daily living allowance for the duration of the conference (23-27 July 2018).
  • A partial scholarship may include any combination of the above.

Applications are open online through the conference profile until 5 February 2018.

    Hello there, I would like to understand of your requirement. “The Scholarship Programme is open to everyone around the world working or volunteering in the field of HIV and AIDS who is at least 16 years of age at the time of the conference”. Does it means that people from the age above 16 years old cant apply. I am an HIV / AIDS Management post graduate holder from Stellenbosch University and in 2018 working on my Masters degree in HIV/AIDS Management. I am eager to attend the conference but I do not have working experience yet in the filed of HIV/AIDS as I am currently employed as an office administrator. I decided to Join the said field because I am patient to play a role in my community because in Africa HIV/AIDS is growing higher among the youth, and a lot still need to be done in terms of educating the youth and creating more wellness. I hereby would like to know if I still qualify to apply for the scholarship and attend the conference?
