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 Educational Participation Grants will be awarded this year, consisting of a complimentary virtual registration for the EHA2022 Hybrid Congress.

The EHA Global Outreach Program Committee will select the winners. The applicants will be informed by April 22, 2022 about the selection. Please read the application criteria and guidelines carefully.
