2020 ASHHNA Scholarships now open

ASHHNA Carol Martin Scholarship Application 2020

ASHHNA Conference Scholarship Application 2020

ASHHNA Research Scholarship Application form 2020

Gilead HIV Conference Scholarship Application 2020

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the ASHHNA Executive Committee, I am pleased to announce that applications for scholarships are now open.

This year, we are able to offer increased funding and new scholarships.

This has come about through generous financial sponsorship by both ViiV Healthcare and Gilead, as well as scholarship funding as a direct result of your ASHHNA membership fees.

This year there are 4 scholarships on offer to members:

  1. The Carol Martin Scholarship, 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.
  2. The ASHHNA Research Scholarship, up to the value of $1000, will be awarded for nurses undertaking research related to the specialty.

As well, two new scholarships on offer this year are:

The ASHHNA Australasian HIV & AIDS Conference Scholarship, sponsored by Gilead, which offers up to $1500 (total $4500), to attend the Australasian HIV & AIDS Conference.

  1. The ASHHNA Conference Scholarship, up to the value of $1500, to attend a conference of your choice.

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 nurses are encouraged to continue with continuing professional development, research and conference attendance (whether traditional or virtual) and to apply for funding through our range of scholarships.

For up-to-date details on the status of the 2020 Australasian HIV & AIDS and Sexual Health conferences, please go to https://www.ashm.org.au/Conferences/conferences-we-organise/the-hiv-aids-conference/

How to tie a tie

Until details for these conferences are finalised, please feel free to begin your conference application, pending announcement of date and cost details from ASHM.

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 1st July 2020.  All application forms are attached and will also be available shortly on the ASHHNA website.

Please find attached all application forms, detailing all the requirements, or feel free to contact me if any questions.

Kind Regards and good luck to all applicants,

Karen Biggs
