Scholarship applications now open!

Applications for Scholarships for the 2020 LGBTIQ Women’s Health Conference are now open! 

Conference scholarships of up to $1000 will be available. Scholarships are designed to assist with access and participation in the 2020 LGBTIQ Women’s Health Conference and to ensure the greatest possible diversity of conference attendees. These scholarships are not only designed to increase access for people from regional or remote areas, or people experiencing financial hardship, but to recognise other systemic barriers some people face in terms of accessing conferences like this one. We consider our formal conference engagement strategy an important guide:

The LGBTIQ Women’s Conference is committed to meaningful inclusion, diversity and access. It aims to create safer spaces to strengthen the health and wellbeing of all LGBTIQ women, including Aboriginal women and Sistergirls, women of colour, women with disabilities, trans, gender diverse and intersex women.

In line with this, priority will be given to:

  • Community members (LGBTIQ people; sexuality and/or gender diverse people)
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • Trans and gender diverse people
  • Intersex people / people with an intersex variation
  • People of colour and/or culturally and linguistically diverse people
  • People with a disability
