The HIV League is a certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to empower the HIV community through scholarship, wellness, and education.

We do this by implementing the HIV League Scholarship, the only national scholarship specifically for students living with HIV where we seek to identify and award scholarships to the most promising students living with HIV as evidenced by their educational accomplishments, leadership, and service.

To date, we have fourteen HIV League Scholars who have or will receive $87,000. We are on track to serve even more members of the HIV community for the 2020 HIV League Scholarship.
