HealthHIV is committed to promoting and advancing HIV, HCV, and LGBT Health. To demonstrate this commitment, HealthHIV will provide 50 registration-only scholarships (valued at $240) to attend the 2018 SYNChronicity Conference. Conference registration includes two breakfast plenary sessions, two lunch plenary sessions, and one reception.

Scholarship recipients will be responsible for their own travel and hotel arrangements.

Scholarship applications are due Friday, December 15.

All applicants are required to complete a personal statement (800 words max) that answers that the following:

  • Why do you want a SYNC scholarship?
  • How do you plan to use the information you receive?
  • What is your agency’s budget?
  • Have you obtained approval from your supervisor to attend?

All applications will be reviewed by the SYNC Scholarship Review Committee.

Please note: You may only apply for one scholarship and scholarships are non-transferrable. Completion of the application is the responsibility of the applicant.

Three major factors will be considered in awarding these scholarships:
a) applicant’s commitment to HIV, HCV, and/or LGBT Health;
b) leadership; and
c) demonstration of need.

If you have questions about the application process, please contact Terrence Calhoun at 202.507.4723 or

Applicants will be notified by e-mail in March 2018.
