ASH Scholar Award Support Information
ASH Scholar Awards are limited to a maximum of $100,000 for Fellow Scholars, $125,000 for the new Fellow to Faculty Scholars, and $150,000 for Junior Faculty Scholars, to be spread evenly over the two- to three-year period of the award. Up to 15 percent of the award can be (but is not required to be) used for benefits, including medical and dental insurance, life insurance, and retirement benefits.
