Each year the Society supports hundreds of haematology professionals to attend international conferences, undertake research and advance haematology education.  

Many of our scholarships are available to members after they have been with the Society for more than one year. Member-only grants are available to all categories of member, including our free Associate members. See our membership page for more information.

The following grants are open to all: Undergraduate support, ASM Travel Scholarships and some Global Haematology Scholarships. Please see the individual grant pages for more information. 

We strive to promote the work of our members as they advance the practice of haematology. Read stories from our previous grant recipients.
