Scholarship opportunities for the 2014 International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia



December 22, 2013 /LGBT News/ Key dates: 
Deadline for scholarship application: 13 February 2014, 24:00 CET
Conference dates: 20 - 25 July, 2014

International Scholarship Programme

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. On average, less than 10% of applicants are awarded a scholarship. Applicants are therefore strongly encouraged to seek other funding as well. 

Those interested in applying for an International Scholarship must complete the online International Scholarship application form through their conference profile between 5 December 2013 and 13 February 2014, 24:00 CET. Click here to see questions included in the International Scholarship application form. 

Those submitting an abstract, workshop and/or programme activity proposal and interested in applying for an International Scholarship should start their scholarship request through their conference profile. Applicants will then receive instructions on how to link their abstract, workshop and/or programme activity to their scholarship application. 

International Scholarship applicants will be asked to submit a letter of recommendation after completing the scholarship application form. No international application will be accepted without submission of the letter of recommendation. 


Media Scholarship Programme

A very limited number of scholarships will also be available for media representatives from around the world. Media scholarship applicants will be asked to provide media accreditation and supporting documents. No media application will be accepted without submission of the required supporting documentation. 

Those interested in applying for a Media Scholarship must complete the online Media Scholarship application form through their conference profile between 5 December 2013 and 13 February 2014, 24:00 CET. Click here to see questions included in the Media Scholarship application form.

Media scholarship applications are open to all bona fide journalists who are at least 16 years of age at the time of the conference (20 July 2014). Click here to look through the Media Scholarship terms and conditions. 

Most of the questions asked on the application form are related to personal details and work experience. There are also questions which ask for further details regarding the applicant's organization, occupation or involvement in the field of HIV, motivation to attend the conference and how the applicant's organization or community would benefit from the scholarship. 


Types of Support

Scholarship applicants will be able to request a full or partial scholarship. 

A full scholarship includes:
  • Registration fee for the conference (include access to all sessions and exhibitions);
  • Travel (pre-paid airfare at the lowest fare available, from the nearest international airport);
  • Accommodation (shared in a budget hotel or dorm for the days of the conference);
  • Modest daily living allowance for the duration of the conference (20-25 July 2014, USD 55 per day).
  • A partial scholarship includes any combination of the above. 


Please note that funding is limited and demand for scholarships is high. Scholarship applicants are therefore encouraged to seek other funding as well.

About the conference


"The International AIDS Conference is the premier gathering for those working in the field of HIV, as well as policy makers, persons living with HIV and other individuals committed to ending the pandemic. It is a chance to assess where we are, evaluate recent scientific developments and lessons learnt, and collectively chart a course forward. 

The AIDS 2014 programme will present new scientific knowledge and offer many opportunities for structured dialogue on the major issues facing the global response to HIV. A variety of session types – from abstract-driven presentations to symposia, bridging and plenary sessions – will meet the needs of various participants. Other related activities, including the Global Village, satellite meetings, exhibitions and affiliated independent events, will contribute to an exceptional opportunity for professional development and networking."
