ILGA World Conference: updates on scholarships and session proposals


Dear friends,
This is an update on scholarship applications and session proposals for the 2019 ILGA World Conference.

We received more than 890 scholarship applications and over 400 session proposals. Thank you for all the interest!

The selection process is taking longer than anticipated: this is why you still haven’t heard from us regarding your application or proposal.
We expect to be able to announce the results by 15 November.

Please note that only successful scholars and successful proposals for sessions will be informed. However, an announcement will be made here and on social media when that happens so that those who have been unsuccessful can investigate other arrangements to attend. Further updates will be available at
