ASHG is providing 10 scholarship awards ($2,500 each) for individuals living in countries categorized by the World Bank as having low-income or lower-middle-income economies. Developing Country awards are to help defray the costs of airfare, hotel, meals and registration. To be considered for the award, you must submit an abstract by the June 2 deadline and must attend the meeting. Funds will be distributed after the meeting. Qualifying authors will also be required to submit a CV/resume, proof of residency, and a letter of support from a colleague or co-author. An email will be sent to qualifying authors in June to collect this information.
