Research Training Award for Fellows

Funding Agency:
American Society of Hematology

The ASH Research Training Award for Fellows (RTAF) is designed to encourage junior researchers in hematology, hematology/oncology, and other hematology-related training programs to pursue careers in academic hematology.

The RTAF is open to both MD and MD-PhD researchers between their second and fifth year of fellowship. The award provides each recipient with $70,000 for a one-year period to guarantee protected time for clinical, basic, or translational research. Additionally, funding is available each year for up to four RTAF recipients to apply for a second year of support.

The funds give fellows in training more time to generate sufficient expertise to be competitive when applying for other awards, such as the ASH Scholar Award, which targets applicants with more extensive research experience and a record of past research success (e.g., publications). Awardees also receive $1,000 the year after their award to support attendance at the ASH annual meeting.

Deadline: Jan. 1, 2020
