ASH Bridge Grant

Since 2013, the ASH Bridge Grant Program has been one of the Society’s most critical programs and has demonstrated the Society’s commitment to protecting the careers of those who are dedicated to hematology research. Each year, 15 to 20 $150,000 yearlong awards are granted to ASH members who applied for an NIH R01 grant or equivalent and were scored but not funded. ASH Bridge Grants are intended to help sustain recipients' research and contribute to their retention in hematology investigation while they reapply.
