ASH Minority Medical Student Award Program
"Without prior exposure, I am not sure I would have considered benign pediatric hematology this early in my career. I cannot thank ASH enough for the amazing opportunities and for the growth and development of my career."
Elizabeth De Jesus, 2018 MMSAP Participant
The ASH Minority Medical Student Award Program (MMSAP) provides underrepresented minority medical students with an opportunity to conduct a research project under the supervision of an ASH member, receive guidance from a career-development mentor, gain valuable knowledge of hematology, and ultimately, advance their careers. As part of the ASH Minority Recruitment Initiative, the MMSAP aims to expand the program’s reach to the next generation of hematologists.
Applicants must have a research mentor who is an ASH member in good standing and may choose from one of three project options with varying program benefits. The summer project option requires an eight- to 12-week commitment; the flexible project requires a commitment of approximately 320 to 480 hours over the course of a year; and the yearlong project requires participants to take a year off from school to engage in research full-time.
