10th IAS Conference on HIV Science | 21-24 July 2019 | Mexico City, Mexico

Scholarship programme

Through the IAS 2019 Scholarship Programme, the conference organizers commit themselves to making the conference accessible to community representatives, healthcare workers, junior investigators and media representatives from resource-limited settings.

The Scholarship Programme has received more than 3,600 applications. The application platform is now closed.

International scholarships

International scholarships are open to anyone around the world working or volunteering in the field of HIV and AIDS and who is at least 16 years old at the time of the conference.

International scholarships seek to support:

  • Abstract presenters whose submission has been selected
  • 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
  • Individuals who are part of a key population or living with HIV

Media scholarships

The IAS/AVAC Media Scholarship Programme makes the conference accessible to a select group of highly-qualified journalists who would not otherwise be able to attend and report on the conference proceedings. The programme also provides a training on HIV research, a series of briefings through the conference week and targeted support to help journalists strengthen their HIV reporting skills.

The partnership between the IAS and AVAC builds off the traditional IAS Media Scholarship Programme to offer increased media support.
