The goal of this effort is to reduce the impact that the global COVID-19 pandemic response has had on the progression of research and careers for early career investigators in hematology. This program provides resources to support resumption of paused research and career stability in an uncertain environment.
It is anticipated that interest in this award will be very high and that the need is acute. As a result and out of respect for applicant time, the award includes a competitively reviewed letter of intent (LOI) and a limited number of invitations to submit a full application. Further, timelines are accelerated and deadlines are absolute. Finally, ASH will not be providing critiques to applicants as a part of this program.
This program is intended to be a needs-based program and well-funded investigators are asked to forgo applying to this award as ASH resources are limited.
