HIV League Scholarship 2019: Applications Now Open

The HIV League has announced that applications for the 2019 HIV League Scholarship, the only national scholarship for college students living with HIV, are now open.

Having just celebrated its three-year anniversary as an organization this past World AIDS Day, The HIV League will be able to award future HIV League Scholars one of these awards:

• 2 year $7,000 scholarship for a full-time student;

• 1 year $3,500 scholarship for a full-time student; and

• 1 year $1,500 scholarship for a part-time student.

These HIV League Scholars will all have demonstrated their promise as scholars living with HIV with their educational accomplishments, leadership, and service.

The HIV League’s mission is to empower the HIV Community through scholarship and education. The success of the HIV League Scholarship depends upon the generosity of the HIV League’s supporters. If you would like to support one of the newest programs for those living with HIV here in the United States, you can contribute to the empowerment of the HIV Community here.
