21st International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016)

Durban, South Africa | July 18-22, 2016

Scholarship Programme

The Scholarship Programme is open to everyone around the world working or volunteering in the field of HIV and AIDS who are at least 16 years of age at the time of the conference. The programme provides financial assistance to help people who would otherwise be unable to attend to benefit from the conference. For more information about the requirements and process, please consult the Scholarship Programme: terms and conditions.


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. A Scholarship Review Committee will contribute to the reviewing and scoring of the applications.

Even though every attempt will be made to assist as many applicants as possible, we regret that there will be only a limited quantity of scholarships available. Applicants are therefore strongly encouraged to seek other funding as well.
