The HIV Research Catalyst Forum

Online Scholarship Application Now Open

The HIV Research Catalyst Forum: Treatment, Prevention, Advocacy is a unique conference focusing on community advocacy in HIV treatment and prevention research. The Catalyst Forum aims to revitalize the community response to the domestic and global AIDS epidemic by amplifying the voices of community advocates in HIV treatment and prevention research. This four-day conference will provide a rare opportunity for new advocates to gain knowledge, build capacity, and sharpen skills; for experienced advocates to exchange ideas, craft strategies, and tackle new challenges; and for advocacy networks to recruit new participants and collaborators to strengthen planned or ongoing research advocacy campaigns.

Who Should Apply:

The deadline for application submission is February 19, 2010.

Applicants will be notified by March 8, 2010.

There are 150 full scholarships available, including travel (domestic coach class airfare and limited ground transportation assistance), 3-night hotel, and a per diem. We will make all travel and lodging arrangements for scholarship recipients.

Note: We've set aside a number of spots for applicants who live in the Baltimore area and do not need travel and hotel. Registration fees for these applications will be waived -- based on a first come first served basis. Please apply using this form.
