The scholarship aims to provide opportunities and support for community members including youth (ages 18-25 years), community advocates/researchers, students (undergraduate, graduate-level, pre-and post-doctoral students) and early-stage investigators in Southern California counties to attend the conference in an effort to promote science, foster networking, and increase capacity building. Individuals from underrepresented populations are encouraged to apply. There are a limited number of scholarships available based on availability of funding with certain restrictions applied.
Priority will be given to those who have not received scholarship funds from CHIPTS within the last 12 months and who have an HIV-related oral/poster presentation or workshop accepted at the conference.
The scholarship covers only the cost of the conference registration fee and will be provided as a reimbursement which will be processed at the end of the conference.
