EHA Educational Travel Grants

EHA awarded a new category of travel grants in 2019, called the Educational Travel Grants, which 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 attending the EHA Congress because of the anticipated benefits to their career or to hematology in their country. A total of 10 special grants will be awarded, consisting of €1000 and free registration for the 25th EHA Congress, to be held in Frankfurt, Germany on June 11-14, 2020.

The EHA Global Outreach Program Committee will select the winners. The applicants will be informed by January 22, 2020 about the selection. Please read the application criteria and guidelines carefully.

The call for applications is now closed.
