Developing Country Awards

ASHG, in partnership with PerkinElmer Genomics, is providing up to 12 scholarship awards ($3,000 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 for the ASHG Annual Meeting. Funds will be distributed at the meeting.

In 2019, ASHG has also partnered with NHGRI and H3Africa to add up to 25 additional awards to individuals living in countries in Africa categorized by the World Bank as having low-income or lower-middle-income economies, with priority given to trainees and early- to mid-career investigators. Awardees will receive up to $3,000 in travel support arranged through the H3Africa program.
