Sponsorship Program – Closed


Update 16/09/2019: The AAAF Sponsorship Program is no longer accepting applications.  The AAAF Sponsorship Program was open for three intake periods from Jan 2019 to September 2019. The Program is now ended and not accepting any further applications. 

This Sponsorship Program aims to provide support for individuals and families living with Alopecia Areata, while also raising awareness of the condition and of AAAF by connecting to new communities.

This program aims to provide support by funding opportunities for skill development and participation in activities which grow the stated outcomes of the individual. AAAF are especially looking for activities which support health and wellness of participants, both physical and mental. Activities which have an element of team or community participation are also encouraged.

The program will raise awareness by collecting and sharing content from sponsorship recipients on social and traditional media. AAAF encourage participants to seek and take part in PR and media activities, and to share information about Alopecia Areata and AAAF with their local communities.
