What an EHA Research Grant supports

Our EHA Research Grants support basic and translational lab-based research in hematology.

The three types of grant available are the:

  • Junior Research Grant
  • Advanced Research Grant
  • Physician Scientist Research Grant

In all cases, you must follow the rules below if you're a successful applicant.

Costs that can be supported by an EHA Research Grant

  • Personnel costs. This might mean you as the applicant or the costs of hiring other research staff to work directly on the project. For example, you could use the grant to hire a postdoctoral researcher, research assistant, or bioinformatician.
  • Lab consumables.
  • Small equipment. However, in all cases, you must provide a justification for the expense.
  • Miscellaneous expenses, such as publication of your project's results.

Mandatory costs

You must use some of your grant to pay for:

  • Attendance at every EHA Congress that's held whilst your project is active
  • A final audit of your project's financial costs

In both cases, the maximum amount that you can use is €2,000.

Costs that cannot be supported by an EHA Research Grant

  • Overhead costs.
  • Excessive travel costs, other than to the EHA Congress (see above).
  • Expenses that are not accompanied by an accurate and sound justification (see application form).
  • Costs for research performed completely and solely by others, not by the applicant. Overseeing the work while absent from the lab is not considered performing the work.
  • Costs that are covered by another fund, even if new funding is acquired during the project, that make all or part of the EHA grant redundant.

Any acquired funding must be communicated to grants@ehaweb.org within 30 days of its awarding.

Your project's budget

If you're submitting an application, you'll need to include budget information in your form.

You can find out more about this in our guide to applying for an EHA Research Grant.
