If it were not for the support of sponsors and donors attending the International Conference on AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Africa, ICASA 2023 would be limited to those who have the economic means to do so. One of the main initiatives of the conference is to make the conference as accessible and beneficial as possible to delegates from all regions of the globe, especially those in resource-limited communities and settings. The Scholarship Programme of ICASA 2023 empowers those least able, but most in need, to attend.

Scholarship will be opened from 3rd July 2023 to 31st July 2023.

Scholarship confirmation letter will be sent to all applicants not later than end of September 2023
