From 15 February to 7 March, GATE opened a call for applications for the Unite! Advocate! Thrive! Global Trans Conference, which takes place from 20 to 21 July 2024, prior to the International AIDS 2024 Conference in Munich.

GATE is providing 75 scholarships for attendees, which will cover all costs related to attending the conference. To ensure regional balance and a truly global experience for all, the Organizing Committee allocated scholarships in the following way:

  • Eastern Europe and Central Asia: 13 scholarships
  • East, Southeast, South Asia and the Pacific: 13 scholarships 
  • North Africa and Southwest Asia: 13 scholarships 
  • Latin America and the Caribbean: 13 scholarships 
  • Western, Central, Eastern, and Southern Africa: 13 scholarships 
  • Western Europe, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the USA: 10 scholarships

On top of the 75 scholarships for attendees, GATE is covering the costs of several key stakeholders: representatives of the Organizing Committee, speakers and session holders, rapporteurs, and more. This brings the total number of activist expenses covered by GATE to 120 out of 180 conference attendees. Additionally, along with 30 self-paid participants coming to the Conference, 30 donors and grant-makers will also attend. This will be a unique and strategic opportunity to foster a shared understanding of the funding needs of the trans and gender diverse movement and identify and encourage opportunities for alignment, collaboration, and learning within the donor community financing trans- and gender diverse-led movements.

Due to limited space at the venue, all applicants, regardless of whether they applied as self-pay or for a scholarship, were put through a selection process prior to being invited to register for the conference. This process was done in an effort to achieve a demographic and geographic balance of attendees and to ensure a truly global experience for all. The Conference Organizing Committee, composed of all the regional partners, determined the outcome of both self-pay and scholarship applicants.

Successful applicants were notified of the outcome of the application process during the first week of April. Regrettably, if you have not received a notification by the end of April, your application was not successful.
