Please note: ASH has moved to a new awards system that is attached to our member database. Please ensure that your information is up-to-date and correct, as we will email you from the primary email address in the database. You can sign in to update your information here.
The ASH Medical Student Physician-Scientist Award provides an opportunity for first-, second-, and third-year medical students to gain experience in hematology research under the mentorship of an ASH member and to learn more about the specialty. Awardees must agree to spend more than 80 percent of their time during the immersive, year-long project conducting laboratory, translational, or clinical hematology research.
The award provides $42,000 of funding for a one-year period, which includes $32,000 to support the trainee, $4,000 for research supplies, $4,000 for insurance and educational expenses (including one course), and $2,000 for meeting attendance (including the ASH annual meeting). Please be aware that if you choose to conduct your research at an institution other than your home institution, your project may be subject to a "visiting researcher fee." Please discuss this potential fee with your research mentor so that you are informed and to ensure that an agreed upon plan is in place to cover this potential fee.
At the ASH annual meeting, award recipients attend an orientation breakfast with members of the ASH Committee on Training and Trainee Council who are available to discuss specific areas of research and to provide recommendations on annual meeting sessions, events, abstracts, and/or posters related to the awardees’ areas of interest. Awardees are also invited to attend the Career Development Reception on Monday evening.
