Abstract Scholarships

Our Abstract Scholarships support the best of haematology science and research; funding is offered to presenters of the highest scoring abstracts to facilitate their attendance at the conference.

Please note that no application is required for an Abstract Scholarship. If your abstract is selected as one of the highest-scoring, we will contact you with an offer shortly after the abstract approvals are sent out.  

Please note that abstract submissions are now closed for 2019.

You do not have to be a BSH Member to receive an Abstract Scholarship, however BSH Members benefit from a higher maximum funding cap.

ASM Travel Scholarship

The ASM Travel Scholarships support students, those in training and associated health professionals. We particularly encourage applications from those representing their departments who will cascade the knowledge to others in their institutions, especially nurse practitioners, clinical scientists, biomedical scientists, academic scientists and PhD students. This scholarship covers reasonable* registration, travel and accommodation costs.
