To encourage young researchers and to recognize excellence, ICASA 2023 will present the Young Investigator Award for each track. The prize supports young researchers who demonstrate excellence in the area of research programs related to the scale up of prevention and treatment interventions in resource-limited settings.
To be eligible for nomination, presenting authors of the abstract must be no older than 35 years of age on 4th December 2023 and is a citizen of a low/middle income country (according to the World Bank classification).
The research must have been carried out in a low/middle income country and must, directly or indirectly, be related to increasing access to prevention and/or treatment in resource-constrained settings. A prize of US $1,000 will be given to the highest scoring abstract which meets the above criteria for each of the conference tracks.
The ICASA Best Oral Abstract winners will also be awarded an ICASA full scholarship. As an additional perk, winners will receive complimentary ICASA delegate registration, granting access to an enriching and diverse conference experience.
Also, all Oral Abstract presenters will receive full scholarships, including free registration.
