We partner with the American Society for Hematology (ASH) to offer the ASH-BSH Abstract Achievement Award. The award recognises their high-scoring abstracts each year.

Up to three BSH Members will receive a US$2,000 award and complimentary registration to the current year's ASH annual meeting.

​BSH members in training who meet the eligibility criteria will automatically be considered for the award as long as the appropriate box is checked in the area marked 'Abstract Achievement/Outstanding Abstract Achievement Award Applicants' during ASH abstract submission.

Applicants must also select their training level and include a letter from their Training Program Director confirming their status as a trainee with their abstract submission.

The awards will be allocated based on their abstract score. Recipients will be either the first or most senior author of the abstract and would usually need to present their abstract in person at the ASH annual meeting to receive the award. Please note: ASH is currently considering options for those who are unable to present in person due to being unable to travel in December as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Please refer to ASH for more information.

Submitters must first identify as a haematology-professional-in-training during the abstract process. Find more information on how to apply on the ASH National Partner Society Abstract Achievement Awards page.


Open to BSH Members who:

  • have not received the ASH Abstract Achievement Award within the previous two years;
  • reside within the UK; and 
  • fall within one of the following training categories: undergraduate student, medical student, post-graduate student, Specialist Trainee, or postdoctoral fellow (MD or PhD).

See the ASH-BSH Abstract Achievement Award page for more details.
