Scholarships

The Scientific Committee is pleased to confirm that funds have been allocated towards assisting the attendance of individuals via scholarships from the three categories listed below. Please note that the number of awards available in each category are limited; applicants are advised to pursue other funding options as well. The Congress will not provide financial assistance to delegates who arrive at the Congress without a confirmed award.

Community Educators
Specifically for those working with patients and other healthcare organisations who have the commitment and opportunity to share knowledge and experience gained from attending the Congress within their immediate community, and/or nationally.  This award is not for healthcare professionals or physicians working in the field.

Physicians working in resource limited settings
For healthcare professionals and physicians with in-depth involvement in treatment and care. Submission of an abstract is not a requirement for this type of scholarship. The ability to share findings amongst your local team and spread knowledge is a requirement of this scholarship.
