The Australian Society for HIV Medicine (ASHM) have announced a new domestic scholarship program for the 20th International AIDS Conference to be held in Melbourne, July 20-25 2014.

The Australian Government Department of Health has awarded $600,000 towards funding for around 150 full and part scholarships.

The scholarships are targeting the following key groups:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • People from culturally and linguistically diverse communities
  • Gay men and other men who have sex with men
  • People living with HIV
  • People from rural and remote settings
  • People who inject drugs
  • Sex workers
  • Young people
