USCA Scholarship Deadline – June 30, 2017

USCA Scholarship Deadline – June 30, 2017

The 2017 United States Conference on AIDS scholarship deadline is June 30th.  This year, NMAC has set aside a special amount of scholarships for residents of the following cities and states.  If you know any HIV leaders who live in these areas, please encourage them to apply.  NMAC will waive the membership requirement when applying from these regions:


  • Missouri
  • New Hampshire
  • Rhode Island
  • South Carolina
  • West Virginia


  • Commerce, CA
  • New Haven, CT
  • Doral and Naples, FL
  • Boise, Idaho Falls, Twin Falls, Pocatello, ID
  • Cambridge and Framingham, MA
  • Morristown, NJ
  • Midwest City, Norman, Duncan, Lawton, Ardmore, OK
  • Allentown, Hamburg, Hershey, Annville PA
  • Vancouver, Chehalis, WA
  • Madison and Beloit, WI

We are prioritizing these regions because they represent the states and districts of key members of Congress. No government or corporate support will be used to fund these scholarships. These awards are financed from the proceeds of the sale of NMAC’s corporate headquarters.

In honor of our 30th Anniversary, NMAC has committed to give out 330 scholarships.  230 scholarships for USCA and 100 scholarships for the Biomedical HIV Prevention Summit in December.  Additionally, we have a special $30 membership for youth and people living with HIV.

Our movement is in a critical fight for funding.  This year all scholarship recipients are asked to participate in HIV/STI Action Day on September 6, 2017.  September is a critical month for the FY18 budget negotiations.  Our movement needs to show up and show out. Your movement needs you, please join us in Washington this September!

Yours in the struggle,

Paul Kawata
