Community Scholarships

The Canada Pavilion is pleased to offer 150 scholarships to the 24th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2022), hosted in Montreal, Canada and virtually.

  • We are providing up to 75 scholarships for in-person participation at AIDS 2022. These scholarships will cover conference registration costs (valued at US$1,080) and offset expenses associated with attending AIDS 2022 (valued at approximately US$2,500).

As a part of efforts to secure greater involvement and meaningfully engage people living with HIV, as well as support participation from often under-represented communities, we will be offering the scholarships to the diverse actors in the Canadian HIV response.
