EHA Research Fellowships & The Jose Carreras Foundation-EHA Young Investigator Fellowship
The EHA Research Fellowships promote high-quality European research in hematology by supporting outstanding junior basic, clinical and experimental researchers in the fields of malignant and non-malignant hematological diseases.
The prestigious José Carreras Foundation-EHA Young Investigator Fellowship provides seed funding for promising young investigators, to encourage and promote quality research in hematology.
Each grant is for a two-year period. The recipients of the Fellowship awards will receive a total of € 100.000, which will be provided in two annual portions of € 50.000, to be transferred to the host institution. The Jose Carreras Young Investigator Fellowship will be awarded to the best application.
The José Carreras Foundation-EHA Young Investigator Fellowship is the Top Award of the EHA Research Fellowships Program. A maximum of € 4.000 per year is to be paid to the institution for institutional overhead to help defray costs related to administering the project. The remainder of the annual grant, € 46.000, is intended to cover salary expenses up to a maximum of € 36.000 per year, including fringe benefits. A maximum of € 10.000 per year may be used for expenses (e.g. consumables, travel, equipment) necessary for pursuit of the research project.
