ASHM Scholarship Program

The ASHM Scholarship Program provides a variety of scholarships to assist ASHM members, affiliates and others in the HIV, viral hepatitis and sexual health sector to attend national and international conferences.  

The scholarships are managed through the Conference Division and awarded on the basis of objective criteria overseen by the Scholarship Committee. Each round of scholarships can be designated for specific professional groups or opened to a broader audience, details are provided with each round.​

The Scholarship Program is designed to support collaborative professional development and all recipients are required to commit to providing a range of reports back to colleagues and peers. The ASHM 'Report Back' Blog is one way this reporting is done.

From time-to-time ASHM manages scholarships for different conferences and/or meetings and this same scholarship platform is used for these activities.
