Developing Country Awards

ASHG provides up to 10 ASHG Annual Meeting travel awards ($3,000 each) to 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 2020, ASHG is partnering with NHGRI and H3Africa to add up to 25 additional awards to its annual Developing Country Awards Program. Those awards ($3,000 each) will be awarded 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.
