Now entering its fourth cycle, the ASH Global Research Award was created especially for trainees and early- career investigators based in countries outside of the United States and Canada. It is intended to support these hematologists during the critical period between completion of training and the establishment of their independent careers — perhaps one of the most challenging periods for these individuals. The award is a funding mechanism (up to $100,000 for projects ≤ 1 year; up to $150,000 for projects > 1 year), but also has some unique, far-reaching underlying goals: to expand the reach of academic hematology and contribute to the development of meaningful scientific research around the world. To date, 26 awardees have been recognized. To learn more about the program, visit the ASH website.
