ASH welcomes support for a number of awards. Corporations interested in supporting any of these awards should contact the Development Department.
The ASH Scholar Awards program is one of the top priorities of the Society, and the ASH Executive Committee is most grateful to those companies who are supporters of this program.
The Society holds an annual competition for the Scholar Awards. The program is designed to support hematologists who have chosen a career in research by providing partial salary or other support during that critical period required for completion of training and achievement of status as an independent investigator.
The awards are made possible through grants from the corporate community, individual ASH members, foundations, and operating funds committed by the Society. The awards are for two years at $50,000 for fellows per year and $75,000 for junior faculty per year. The Society requests a minimum contribution of $10,000, and encourages companies to give a full $50,000 to support the equivalent of one award for one year.
As the Society's top priority, the priority-point system weighs heavily in favor of supporting the scholars program. If your company is interested in increasing their priority-point standing quickly, supporting this program is the best way to do so.
Minority Medical Student Award Program
One of ASH’s newest programs, the MMSAP, is an eight- to 12-week research experience for students from the United States and Canada in their early medical school years. In addition, those who complete the initial research experience will have the option of participating in an additional hematology research experience in a subsequent year of medical school.
The establishment of this program illustrates the Society leadership’s commitment to encouraging and supporting minorities to enter and remain in the field of hematology. With one full cycle of the program under our belt, we would like to extend this program as a support opportunity to the corporate community. The Society requests a minimum contribution of $10,000 to the MMSAP.
Abstract Achievement Award
Each year the Society offers Abstract Achievement Awards (formerly Travel Awards) to select individuals in conjunction with its annual meeting. The Abstract Achievement Award program recognizes individuals who are both first author and presenter of their abstracts in four categories: medical students, graduate students, resident physicians, and post-doctoral fellows. Each award, in the amount of $500, is intended to assist individuals who are beginning careers in medicine or medical science. Without the financial assistance provided by these awards, many of these individuals would not be able to attend the meeting and present their work. Support of these awards is greatly appreciated, well publicized, and instrumental in advancing the field of hematologic research.
