EHA Educational Participation Grants

Originally launched in 2019, EHA awards a new category of grants, called the Educational Travel Grants. As the Annual Congress will be virtual in 2021, the grants have been renamed to Educational Participation Grants.

EHA wants to facilitate participation in the Annual Congress for hematologists, researchers and practitioners from lower and middle-income countries. We especially want to encourage individuals who demonstrate a high degree of motivation towards participating in the EHA Congress because of the anticipated benefits to their career or to hematology in their country. A substantial number of these Educational Participation Grants will be awarded, consisting of a complimentary registration for the EHA2021 Virtual Congress.

The EHA Global Outreach Program Committee will select the winners. The applicants will be informed by April 23, 2021 about the selection. Please read the application criteria and guidelines carefully.
