Applications for the 2021 ASHHNA scholarships are now open.
This year, thanks to generous financial sponsorship by both ViiV Healthcare and Gilead, as well as scholarship funding as a direct result of your ASHHNA membership fees, we are able to offer 4 scholarships to members:
- The Carol Martin Professional Development Scholarship For Sexual & Reproductive Health and HIV Nurses and Midwives, generously funded by ViiV Healthcare, offers scholarships up to the value of $1500 ($5000 in total) for nurses to attend a Conference/Workshop/Short Course.
- The ASHHNA Australasian HIV & AIDS Conference Scholarship, sponsored by Gilead, which offers up to $1500 (total $4500), to attend the Australasian HIV & AIDS Conference.
- The ASHHNA Conference Scholarship, up to the value of $1500, to attend a conference of your choice.
In addition, a new scholarship on offer this year is the ASHHNA Clinical Placement Scholarship, up to the value of $1000. This scholarship provides funding to support members to undertake clinical placements relevant to their work. This scholarship offers financial assistance for travel, accommodation and charges directly associated with the clinical placement. A clinical placement is considered as a continuous period of at least 2 days duration in one location.
Of course, in the current COVID climate, this increase in funding coincides with uncertainty in relation to conference and course delivery, travel and accommodation. However, despite this, all members are encouraged to continue with continuing professional development, and conference attendance (whether traditional or virtual) and to apply for funding through our range of scholarships.
Please note ONE APPLICATION IS ONLY REQUIRED PER MEMBER. If you are unsuccessful in your application, it may be considered for an alternative scholarship if there is funding remaining, and you are eligible for that scholarship.
Applications open today and will close on 23rd July 2021.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SUBMITTED APPLICATIONS ARE FINAL. IF YOUR APPLICATION IS INCOMPLETE YOU WILL BE SCORED ACCORDINGLY.
