Presenters of oral and poster abstracts as well as invited symposium and plenary presenters who would be unable to attend the conference without financial assistance are eligible to apply.

Priority will be given to researchers from low- and middle-income countries. Awardees are selected through a competitive process based on abstract quality, demonstrated commitment to research or advocacy in the field, and written and spoken proficiency in English.
