CAHR 2014 - Community Scholarship Application Is Open
Information on the CAHR Community Scholarship
Are you a person living with or affected by HIV/AIDS, or do you work or volunteer in the HIV/AIDS
community? Attending CAHR 2014 is an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in, and
evidence presented from current HIV research, and to share your lived experience.
Please note, additional funding for community members from First Nations, Inuit and/or Métis
communities will be offered. As such, please ensure you note this affiliation in your application.
To support Community attendance and participation at the CAHR Conference, the Community Scholarship
Program provides financial assistance and support for twelve individuals from across Canada. This
assistance is referred to as "scholarship", and anyone who qualifies as a member of the HIV/AIDS
community may apply. CAHR provides a separate but similar scholarship program for HIV
researchers to support new investigators to attend the conference.
The CAHR community scholarship program is open to individuals working or volunteering in any field related to
HIV/AIDS. CAHR policy limits full scholarship support to any single individual to once in every continuous
five-year period, in order to maximize fair access to scholarships and to distribute the scholarships
among the maximum number of recipients.
For CAHR 2014, twelve scholarships are available for people from across Canada, and fifteen conference
registrations are available for people from the host city/region (St. John's area).
These scholarships, supported in part by the Public Health Agency of Canada, are offered in partnership
with the CATIE-CAHR Community Learning Institute. Recipients of these scholarships will be required to
work alongside community workers from across Canada supported by CATIE to attend and report on the CAHR
Conference. With support from CATIE and CAHR staff and researchers, you will be asked to cover a
specific area of conference content from the perspective of a community member, contribute to
the Community Rapporteur Session at CAHR, and be asked to disseminate this information in
your region afterwards.
