ASH provides valuable opportunities for aspiring hematologists in medical school or residency to conduct hands-on hematology research under the mentorship of an ASH member. ASH is currently accepting applications for the following awards:

Physician-Scientist Career Development Award

This award provides medical students with the opportunity to gain experience in hematology research and to learn more about the specialty by immersing themselves in a yearlong laboratory, translational, or clinical investigation under the mentorship of an ASH member. Up to five awardees will receive $42,000 for living expenses, research supplies, insurance, educational expenses, and travel to the ASH annual meeting.

Submit your application by January 17.

Minority Medical Student Award Program

This award provides $5,000 for minority medical students to conduct hematology research in a cutting-edge facility of top hematologists in the country. Program participants receive guidance from both a research and career-development mentor and have the option to complete their research project during the summer break or over the course of a year.

Submit your application by February 1.

Minority Resident Hematology Award Program

This award is a “next-step” research opportunity for medical residents to gain valuable hematology research experience and guidance. Awardees will receive a $5,000 stipend to support their research project and additional funds to travel to the ASH annual meeting.

Submit your application by February 1.

HONORS (Hematology Opportunities for the Next Generation of Research Scientists)

This award provides talented medical students and residents with the opportunity to conduct a short-term hematology research project for up to three months or a long-term project lasting between three and 12 months. Awardees will receive a $5,000 stipend to complete their research project.
