American Society of Hematology

ASH Bridge Grant

The 2017 application cycle is now closed.

Since 2013, ASH has helped hematologists continue their critical blood disease research amidst severe funding reductions for the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Each year, approximately 20-30 one-year awards of $150,000 are granted to ASH members who applied for an NIH R01 grant or equivalent but were denied funding due to budget cutbacks. The ASH Bridge Grant program is intended to help sustain recipients' research and contribute to their retention in hematology investigation.
