ASH Research Programs and Awards
ASH supports basic, clinical, and translational hematology investigators at all levels of their careers through its many research award and grant programs.
- ASH Bridge Grant
As a demonstration of its commitment to protecting the field and those who have dedicated their careers to the specialty, ASH has established the Bridge Grant to help preserve the careers of its talented member scientists whose vital research will not be accomplished due to across-the-board cuts to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) budget.
- ASH Clinical Research Training Institute
The ASH Clinical Research Training Institute (CRTI) is a unique year-long education and mentoring program for hematology and hematology/oncology fellows-in-training, as well as junior faculty physicians at academic medical centers. The goal of ASH’s Clinical Research Training Institute is to prepare hematologists for careers in patient-oriented clinical research.
- ASH Clinical Research Training Institute in Latin America
The Clinical Research Training Institute in Latin America is intended for fellows and early to mid-career hematology faculty working in Latin American countries who are engaged in clinical research and training.
- ASH Global Research Award
The ASH Global Research Award was designed to support future international scientific leaders, increase hematology capacity, and nurture global collaboration. The award is intended to support hematologists between completion of training and the establishment of their independent careers.
- ASH Research Training Award for Fellows
The ASH Research Training Award for Fellows (RTAF) is designed to encourage junior researchers in hematology, hematology/oncology, and other hematology-related training programs to pursue a career in academic hematology.
- ASH-EHA Translational Research Training in Hematology
ASH-EHA Translational Research Training in Hematology is a unique, year-long training and mentoring program focused on helping junior researchers build successful careers in hematologic translational research.
- ASH Physician-Scientist Career Development Award
The Physician-Scientist Career Development Award immerses medical students between their first and second or second and third years of school in a one-year, full-time research experience in hematology.
- ASH HONORS (Hematology Opportunities for the Next Generation of Research Scientists) Award
The HONORS (Hematology Opportunities for the Next Generation of Research Scientists) Award is intended for medical students and residents in the United States, Canada, or Mexico with an interest in hematology research. The award will provide the recipient with a $5,000 stipend to conduct either a short hematological research project for a maximum of three months, or a long hematological research project between three and 12 months.
- ASH Minority Medical Student Award Program
The Minority Medical Student Award Program (MMSAP) is structured around research experiences of various lengths for students from the United States and Canada in their early years of medical school. Each year, up to 10 minority medical students enrolled in DO, MD, or MD/PhD programs are selected to participate.
- ASH Minority Resident Hematology Award Program
The ASH Minority Resident Hematology Award Program provides hematology research support for underrepresented minority residents in the United States and Canada. Participants are matched with and receive guidance from a career-development mentor, gain valuable knowledge of hematology, and ultimately, advance their careers.
- ASH Abstract Achievement Awards and Outstanding Abstract Achievement Awards
Support for trainees with high-scoring annual meeting abstracts.
