ASH Announces 2020 Minority Graduate Student Abstract Achievement Awards

December 2, 2020

The Minority Graduate Student Abstract Achievement Award is part of the ASH Abstract Achievement Award program. This award program is meant to encourage minority graduate students in the field of hematology and is part of the broader minority recruitment initiative at ASH, which also includes the Minority Medical Student Award Program (MMSAP), the Minority Resident Hematology Award Program (MRHAP), and the ASH-Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program (ASH-AMFDP) in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The goal of the Minority Graduate Student Abstract Achievement Award is to attract and retain minority PhD students to the field of hematology through the ASH annual meeting. At this meeting, students will have the opportunity to hear the latest advances in hematology-related research and interact with ASH leadership, senior researchers, and minority physicians, scientists, and students. These awards go to select graduate students to acknowledge their accomplishments in the field of hematology.
