Applications due August 30, 2008
HRIDAY-SHAN, a GYAT partner, will be hosting a two day pre-conference leading up to the WCTOH. The pre-conference will be in New Delhi, India on March 6-7, 2009. It will be a great opportunity to reconnect with GYAT members and meet new youth and young adult advocates fighting the tobacco industry around the world.
You can find all the application materials and more information about the pre-conference at the WCTOH website. This information is also posted on HRIDAY-SHAN's website.
A limited number of scholarships will be available to support participation in the pre-conference, but they will only be awarded to applicants from developing countries. Youth and young adults from developed countries are encouraged to apply to attend, but will have to secure their own funding for participation.
Youth and young adult applicants must be age 16 - 25, and adult chaperons are also encouraged to apply to accompany youth under age 18. Adult chaperons should also be working in the tobacco prevention field.
