2019 IAS/AVAC Media Scholarship Programme (Fully Funded to Mexico) | Diplomacy Opportunities

IAS AVAC Media Scholarship Programme

The IAS/AVAC Media Scholarship Programme makes the conference accessible to a select group of highly-qualified journalists who would not otherwise be able to attend and report on the conference proceedings. The programme also provides a training on HIV research, a series of briefings through the conference week and targeted support to help journalists strengthen their HIV reporting skills.

The partnership between the IAS and AVAC builds off the traditional IAS Media Scholarship Programme to offer increased media support.
