Offer: Scholarships Available for the XVIII International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2010)
On behalf of the International AIDS Society (IAS) and our Austrian and international partners, it is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the XVIII International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2010), to be held in Vienna, Austria, from 18 to 23 July 2010.
Scholarships are open to anyone working in the field of HIV and AIDS and will be offered to people from a variety of backgrounds, including those who are submitting abstracts, workshop proposals and programme activity proposals (Global Village or Youth Programme). A number of applicants who are not submitting directly to the conference programme, as well as media representatives will also be granted scholarships.
Please note that funding is limited and demand for scholarships is high.
Scholarship applications are accepted from 8 December 2009 to 10 February 2010.
International Scholarship Programme:
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.
Media Scholarship Programme:
A very limited number of scholarships will be available for media representatives from around the world. Media scholarship applicants will be asked to provide media accreditation and supporting documents. No applications will be accepted without submission of the required supporting documents. It is the applicants’ responsibility to ensure they have submitted the correct documents.
