COVID-19 HIV League Micro-Scholarship
In response to the COVID-19 epidemic, The HIV League has created the COVID-19 HIV League Micro-Scholarship. The COVID-19 HIV League Micro-Scholarship is a needs-based scholarship for those who demonstrated the most need during the COVID-19 epidemic. Each micro-scholarship awarded consisted of $1,000 funds for each Scholar to use towards their education.
The HIV League received 114 applications for this micro-scholarship opportunity and was able to award 30 $1,000 micro-scholarships.
