The ASH Minority Medical Student Award Program (MMSAP) offers the chance to learn about the field of hematology, gain first-hand research experience, and get valuable guidance from both a research and career development mentor. Applications are due in January.

The ASH Minority Medical Student Award Program (MMSAP) is designed to introduce minority medical students to hematology and hematology research through one of the following research options.

  • Yearlong project: students must take a year off from medical school during what would otherwise be their second, third, or fourth year of medical school

Summar & Flex projects receive a $5,000 stipend and $2,000 for research supplies.

Yearlong projects receive a $32,000 stipend and $4,000 for research supplies.
