The American Society of Hematology (ASH) provides more than $12 million in career development and training awards to early- and mid-career hematologists. These invaluable awards provide support to trainees who seek hematology-focused research experience, funding, mentorship, and other benefits.
For 20 years, through the ASH Minority Recruitment Initiative (MRI), the Society has continuously worked to increase the participation of trainees in hematology-related fields and to increase the number of minority hematologists with academic and research appointments.
