- ASH Bridge Grant Program
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 Program 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.
- Scholar Awards
Entering its 29th year, the ASH Scholar Awards are designed to support hematologists who have chosen a career in research by providing partial salary or other support during that critical period required for completion of training and achievement of status as an independent investigator.
- ASH Abstract Achievement Awards and Outstanding Abstract Achievement Awards
Support for trainees with high-scoring annual meeting abstracts
- 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.
- Clinical Research Training Institute in Latin America
The Clinical Research Training Institute in Latin America is a pilot program intended for early- to mid-level hematology faculty working in Latin American countries who are engaged in clinical research and training and would like to become more familiar with clinical trial design and execution.
- Research Training Award for Fellows
The ASH Research Training Award for Fellows (RTAF) is designed to encourage junior researchers in hematology, hematology/oncology, or other hematology-related training programs to pursue a career in academic hematology.
- Translational Research Training in Hematology
The Translational Research Training in Hematology (TRTH) award gives young researchers the tools, mentoring, and access to resources beneficial for a successful career in hematology.
- 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.
- HONORS (Hematology Opportunities for the Next Generation of Research Scientists)
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.
- Minority Medical Student Award Program
The Minority Medical Student Award Program (MMSAP) is structured around an 8- to 12-week research experience 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.
- Minority Resident Hematology Award Program
The Minority Resident Hematology Award Program (MRHAP) is
the newest program on ASH’s Minority Recruitment Initiative (MRI) longitudinal
pathway. MRHAP is designed to provide support for underrepresented minority
resident physicians in an internal medicine, pathology, or pediatric residency
program in the United States or Canada to conduct hematology focused research.
The intended outcome is increasing interest in hematology research and choice
