You may request a scholarship before or after submitting an abstract, workshop or activity. To submit a scholarship, login on the profile platform and go to the “scholarship” section on the left panel.
It is very important that the presenter, facilitator or organizer’s email address is the same as the one used to apply for a scholarship, as the link between submission and scholarship application is based on email address.
At the end of the scholarship application, if you already made a submission or if you are listed as a presenter/facilitator/organizer for a submission, the submission(s) number(s) will be displayed.
Once your scholarship application is submitted, you can verify the link between your submission(s) and scholarship application at any given time by consulting your scholarship application.
Scholarship allocations for abstract presenters, workshop facilitators or activity organizers are judged based on the quality of the submission.
Important note: the scholarship is connected to the submission, not to the individual. Consequently, if the presenting author, facilitator or organizer changes, the scholarship is cancelled, unless a request is made to transfer the grant to the new presenting author, facilitator or organizer. In case the new presenting author, facilitator or organizer has already incurred costs for travel, accommodation or registration, these will not be reimbursed by the scholarship programme.
Please note that the selection of your abstract, workshop or activity in the AIDS 2020 conference programme does not guarantee you a scholarship. Therefore, you are strongly recommended to seek alternative funding.
