We partner with the American Society for Hematology to offer the ASH-BSH Abstract Achievement Award; to recognise their high-scoring abstracts each year up to three BSH Members will receive a USD$2000 award as well as complimentary registration to the current year’s ASH annual meeting. 

​BSH members in training who meet the eligibility criteria will be automatically considered 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 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 will need to present their abstract in person at ASH to receive the award.

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


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.
