The rapid pace of scientific discovery in care for people living with HIV and AIDS requires clinicians and other HIV service providers to remain continually up to date on research developments and best practices. The IAS is proud to announce the continuation of the programme, to support clinicians and other HIV service providers from resource-limited settings to attend the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018).

Scholarships for AIDS 2018

The IAS Educational Fund will provide scholarships for clinicians and other HIV service providers to attend the AIDS 2018 conference in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The programme targets physicians, nurses, community health workers, pharmacists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers from resource-limited settings who will be able to transfer the lessons learned and knowledge back to their communities. HIV advocates are also encouraged to apply.

Clinicians and other HIV service providers, as well as HIV advocates, can apply for a scholarship through their conference profile until 5 February 2018, 23:59 CET, using the same platform as AIDS 2018 scholarships.

If you have already applied for an AIDS 2018 scholarship, no further action is required, your application will also be taken into consideration by the IAS Educational Fund should you meet the criteria.

If you have not already applied for an AIDS 2018 scholarship, please log in to your conference profile (or create a new one) in order to access the scholarship application platform.

Please read the IAS Educational Fund scholarships application procedure before you apply.
