Educational Travel / 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 Travel & Participation Grants will be awarded this year, consisting of a complimentary registration for the EHA2023 Hybrid Congress, and €1000 to support physical attendance (Educational Travel Grants only). The deadline to submit an application is March 10, 2023 (23:59 CET).

The EHA Global Outreach Program Committee will select the winners. The applicants will be informed by March 24, 2023 about the selection. Please read the application criteria and guidelines carefully.
