American Society of Hematology Scholar Awards
The ASH Scholar Awards are designed to support hematologists who have chosen a career in research by providing partial salary or other support during that critical period required for completion of training and achievement of status as an independent investigator.
Awards are limited to a maximum of $100,000 for fellow scholars and $150,000 for junior faculty scholars over a two- to three-year period, with an annual maximum of $50,000 for fellows and $75,000 for junior faculty. Up to 15 percent of the award can be (but is not required to be) used for benefits, including medical and dental insurance, life insurance, and retirement benefits.
All awards are activated on July 1 of the following year. The applicant has the option of concluding the award on June 30, two or three years after activation. All award payments are made on a quarterly basis - the amount depends on whether the award is being spread over two or three years. Payments are made to the appropriate financial officer of the institution as indicated on the proposed budget within the full application.
ASH considers basic research to include a broad spectrum of studies on genes, proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, biochemical and signaling pathways, receptors, cells and animals, as well as samples obtained from humans, all of which are designed to further our understanding of the blood, bone marrow, and related organs or the pathogenesis of blood disorders. The emphasis for grants in this category should be on the discovery of new knowledge in a traditional laboratory setting.
ASH defines translational research as using knowledge of human biology to develop and test the feasibility of relevant interventions in humans and/or determine the biological basis for observations made in individuals with hematologic conditions or in populations at risk. Translational research should be founded on and directly connected to some aspect of human biology and may encompass any form of structural, biochemical, genetic, or other appropriate experimental approaches using human materials. The proposal should address clinical applications - not just test development - although the development of novel instrumentation of value to hematology is clearly within the scope of the application. Clinical trial projects with laboratory correlatives are considered clinical.
Clinical Research: ASH considers clinical/translational research to include patient-oriented research and outcomes-based research. ASH emphasizes that clinical research must involve substantial interaction with patients.
For the purposes of the ASH Scholar Awards program, patient-oriented research is defined as research conducted with human subjects and involves an investigator directly interacting with human subjects. Categories of patient-oriented research include: 1) mechanisms of human disease, 2) therapeutic interventions, 3) clinical trials, and 4) development of new technologies.
ASH strongly encourages applications in outcomes-based research. Options for outcomes-based research include: 1) a decision-analysis or cost-effectiveness analysis of a relevant topic within hematology, 2) survey-based research investigating practice patterns, access to care, quality of care, clinical outcomes, or quality of life among patients with hematologic conditions, 3) retrospective analyses of large administrative databases (e.g., CMS, a large insurer, SEER) that may enlighten health care policy decisions related to hematologic disease, and 4) large scale epidemiologic or genetic epidemiologic studies that define the incidence, prevalence, prognosis, and natural history or the effects of therapy of blood disorders.
Applications that fall within any of the categories discussed above are encouraged.

American Society of Hematology Bridge Grant Program
All applicants must submit proposals to conduct research in hematology.
ASH considers basic research to include a broad spectrum of studies on genes, proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, biochemical and signaling pathways, receptors, hematopoietic cells, and samples obtained from human patients or from vertebrate animal models. For the purpose of this grant, hematology-related basic research is designed to further our understanding of the blood, bone marrow, and related organs and/or the pathogenesis of blood disorders. The emphasis for grants in this category should be on the discovery of new knowledge in a traditional laboratory setting.
ASH defines translational research as using knowledge of human biology to develop and test the feasibility of relevant interventions in humans and/or determine the biological basis for observations made in individuals with hematologic conditions or in populations at risk. Translational research should be founded on and directly connected to some aspect of human biology and may encompass any form of structural, biochemical, genetic, or other appropriate experimental approaches using human materials.

Application notification of acceptance: Mid-Late July, 2014
To be eligible for the ASH Bridge Grant Award all applicants must:
Have submitted a hematology-related R01 or equivalent application to NIH in the past 18 months that was scored but not funded.
ASH uses the NIH definition of R01 equivalence: “R01-equivalent awards include R01, R23, R29, and R37 activity codes and, beginning in fiscal year 2008, DP2 awards to first-time NIH investigators. Not all of these activities are in use by NIH every year.”
The 18 month timeline is linked specifically to the date your R01 was reviewed by the NIH study section.
Be an ASH member or have a pending application for membership at the time of application.
If you have a pending application and are awarded a Bridge Grant Award, your award will be conditional based upon membership approval
Hold a faculty position in an academic institution or the equivalent position in a non-profit research organization. Employees of independent research institutions are eligible to apply if they have a faculty type appointment and the institution is allowed to independently apply for and receive NIH funding.
At the time of award activation, the amount of other research funding available to the principal investigator may not exceed $250,000 annually. This amount does not include the applicant’s salary/fringe and funding from within the institution.
Hematologists eligible to apply for the ASH Scholar Award are not eligible to apply for this award.
Individuals cannot hold an ASH Scholar Award and ASH Bridge Grant concurrently. ASH Scholars can apply if their award terminates before the commencement of the bridge grant.
Applicants can apply a maximum of three times over the three-year award program.

American Dental Association Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) Program
2014 GKAS Community Leadership Development Institute
Over the past eleven years, the American Dental Association's Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) Program has established itself in providing education and oral health care to nearly half a million underserved children annually. As GKAS enters its 12th year, the program’s focus has evolved to become a more comprehensive program, particularly through the provision of continuity of care and the establishment of dental homes for children.
From 2007-2010, the GKAS Promising Practices Symposium offered an opportunity for like-minded individuals to come together, learn from one another and share valuable resources regarding how to move existing dental care systems to the next level for America’s underserved children. In an effort to continue this experience and enhance the concept, in 2011 & 2012 the Symposium shifted to become the GKAS Community Leadership Development Institute (GKAS Institute). Selected participants have an opportunity to learn, in-person, how to initiate, expand and/or enhance a GKAS program. View past GKAS Community Leadership Development Institute Ambassadors.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, HuFriedy, Henry Schein Cares, and the ADA Foundation, the 2014 Community Leadership Development Institute will take place where GKAS first began – St. Louis. An estimated 650 underserved children will receive comprehensive care during the St. Louis GKAS Program which is scheduled to take place October 22-25, 2014.
Goal: The goal of the grant application is to execute a process whereby eligible applicants interested in expanding, enhancing, or beginning their GKAS programs can apply for funds to subsidize travel expenses associated with attending the GKAS Institute.
Grant Award: For this grant, up to ten travel grants will be given. The GKAS National Advisory Committee reserves the right to increase or decrease the number of awards given.
Eligibility Organizations: State (constituent) and local (components) dental societies of the ADA and/or community based organizations providing oral health care for underserved children during GKAS will be considered. Applicants must reside within the U.S. 50 states.
Candidates demonstrating their commitment and ability to begin a new GKAS program or enhance an existing one will be considered.
Candidate should have experience with managing/chairing an access to care event.
These candidates should hold a position in their organization that will allow them to effectively implement lessons learned during the GKAS Institute.
Applicants do not necessarily have to be a licensed dentist or hygienist.
Applicant will be asked to serve as a GKAS Ambassador during the GKAS Institute. The GKAS Ambassador will work the duration of the October 22-25, 2014 event in a variety of capacities depending on his/her particular interest and program goals. Examples of duties of an ambassador span from being a clinic escort, working at the check-in/check-out process, sterilization area, photography, triage area, education area, entertainment area, and more. The St. Louis GKAS Clinic will allow for the needs of the participants while allowing them to experience first-hand the workings of the clinic. Due to Missouri licensing rules, not all participants present will necessarily be working as clinical practitioners.
The deadline to return the application is Tuesday, April 29, 2014. Only applications completed online by this deadline will be considered. All applicants will be notified of the GKAS selection subcommittee’s decision the week of May 27, 2014. Please contact the Give Kids A Smile Team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding the GKAS Institute.
