57th ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition

Research opportunities now available

Do you know an underrepresented minority medical student who is interested in research and might specialize in hematology? Through ASH’s Minority Recruitment Initiative (MRI) the Society provides valuable career development awards to support the participation of underrepresented minorities in hematology-related fields. Program participants conduct hands-on research in a cutting-edge facility with some of the top hematologists in the country and receive guidance from ASH member career-development mentors. Additional funds are provided for travel to the ASH annual meeting.

ASH is currently accepting applications for the following MRI awards:

Minority Medical Student Award Program

This award is designed to introduce medical students to hematology and hematology research and provides a $5,000 - $32,000 stipend. Awardees have the option to conduct their research project during the summer, over the course of a year, or full-time.

Minority Resident Hematology Award Program

This award is designed to support residents who are conducting hematology research. The program aims to increase interest in hematology research and selection of hematology for fellowship. Awardees receive a $5,000 stipend to conduct their research project over the course of a year.

Beckman Young Investigators Grants for Life Sciences Research on Trialect

We have a posting on Trialect<> soliciting the Letter of Intent for The Beckman Young Investigator (BYI) Program. BYI Program provides research support to the most promising young faculty members in the early stages of their academic careers in the life sciences. Projects are normally funded for a period of four years. Grants are in the range of $600,000 over the term of the project. Last year, the awards went to the investigators from University of New Mexico, Cornell University, University of Washington, Montana State University, University of California Los Angeles, Georgia Institute of Technology, Stanford University, etc. As the deadline for LOI is 2 weeks away, we are reaching out to see if your junior faculty would be interested. The details can be perused at : Beckman Young Investigators Grants<>


2017 UCLA Pediatrics Visiting Elective Scholarship Program

The UCLA Department of Pediatrics Visiting Elective Scholarship Program (VESP) provides financial support to senior U.S. medical students who self-identify as being members of groups underrepresented in medicine, and who are interested in applying to UCLA for a senior clinical elective. The goal of the program is to expose traditionally underrepresented senior medical students from institutions outside of the Los Angeles region to clinical training in our academic pediatrics program, and to learn more about the Pediatrics Residency Training Program at UCLA. Benefits of the program include…

  • Financial support for travel, housing and living expenses, up to $2,000 for each recipient.

  • A faculty mentor will be assigned to each scholarship awardee, with the expectation that the mentor and awardee will meet at least once during the course of the elective period to discuss residency training and other career opportunities at UCLA.

  • The program will host a networking event for scholarship recipients to meet residents and faculty from the UCLA Department of Pediatrics.

  • Additional meetings with UCLA faculty will be arranged at the request of the student. For example, students interested in Ph.D. training may wish to meet with Division Chairs in relevant areas of research.

Applications are being accepted now through October 2017 for electives in the June through December 2017 time window.  For more information on the program and application requirements, please contact Stella Tripp at This email address is being protected from spambots.
