Programs and awards designed specifically for hematologists working and residing outside of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
As the world's largest professional society of hematologists, ASH provides many awards and programs to support hematologists in all stages of their careers and to honor those who have helped advance the field of hematology.
The United States and countries around the world face a major public health concern with the current outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). While ASH is continuing to support hematologists through a variety of programs, awards, and grants, we understand that the entire medical community is currently focused on addressing this public health crisis. If these circumstances are preventing you from participating in or applying for one of our programs, we encourage you to contact firstname.lastname@example.org, prior to stated deadlines.
Please note: Application requirements for several awards have been streamlined to make the application process easier! These changes include:
- The application acceptance period MMSAP and MRHAP has been extended to allow applicants more time to collect required application materials.
- Eligibility requirements for MRI awards have expanded to include DACA and J1 Visa holders from racial and ethnic groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in health-related sciences in the U.S. and Canada – check the award descriptions for more info.
- Returning recipients can easily reapply for awards with our newly streamlined Renewal Application feature.
ASH Minority Recruitment Initiative
The ASH Minority Recruitment Initiative (MRI) was created in 2003 to increase the participation of underrepresented minorities training in hematology-related fields and to increase the number of minority hematologists with academic and research appointments.
