Participation grants & abstract awards
The call for participation grant applications has opened.
Participation Grants (previously called Travel Grants) provide complimentary registration for the upcoming EHA Virtual Congress. These grants will be available for investigators with accepted abstracts only, submitted during the regular abstract submission. Participation Grants are intended to support young investigators; therefore applicants should be 36 years of age or younger. A number of Participation Grants have been reserved for abstract authors from countries with lower- and lower/middle-income economies.
Participation Grant applications will be reviewed based on the following criteria:
- You have applied for a junior membership with EHA before March 1, 2021.
- Your junior membership fee has been paid before March 6, 2021.
- You are the first, presenting and submitting author of a submitted abstract.
Note: Current winners of EHA research grants, CRTH or TRTH programs are not eligible to receive a Participation Grant.
The Scientific Program Committee (SPC) will decide, according to the scores of the abstracts, which abstract receives a Participation Grant. This will be announced to the submitting author together with their abstract allocation by email by April 23, 2021.
Any questions regarding the criteria, the application or procedure can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
YoungEHA Best Abstract Award
One of the primary missions of the European Hematology Association is to support young hematology clinicians and researchers. Therefore at EHA22 we launched the YoungEHA Best Abstract Awards. These are awarded to the highest ranking abstracts in the following four categories: Clinicians or medical students training for a PhD degree, PhD research students, postdoctoral fellows and clinical hematology trainees. Winners will present their abstracts at the Congress during a special session - it is our honor to welcome these YoungEHA trainees– they are the future of Hematology. The Award consists of € 500 and free registration to the next congress of EHA.
Please note that this award does not require an application procedure. The selection is made by the Scientific Program Committee and Advisory Board based on the highest ranking abstracts.
