CROI invites community leaders who engage in communications and educational activities focused on HIV prevention, treatment, or cure research to apply for a CROI Community Scholarship. Community Scholarship applicants must demonstrate an established commitment to sharing scientific knowledge with stakeholders as well as an ability to expand research and science literacy among communities impacted by HIV.
CROI is an intensely science-focused meeting during which a large volume of data- and research-based HIV information is presented. Individuals who are awarded the CROI Community Scholarship are leaders who are highly motivated to learn and apply the ever evolving research around HIV prevention, treatment, and cure concepts. In order to be considered for the Community Scholarship award, applicants must demonstrate the competency and skills to translate complicated science to a wide array of community members and various stakeholders in different contexts. All CROI Community Scholarship awardees are awarded waived CROI registration. Additionally, partial or full travel awards may be made available to some CROI Community Scholarship awardees with demonstrated need for travel support.
Please note: Beginning with CROI 2021, there will be a limit to the number of times a person can receive a CROI scholarship.
