Young Investigator Travel Grants « SOHO 2019



Young Investigator Travel Grants

In an effort to provide more opportunities for younger physicians and scientists, the Society for Hematologic Oncology (SOHO) has created a Travel Grant Program for eligible individuals to attend the SOHO 2019 Annual Meeting to be held September 11-14, 2019 at the Hilton Americas-Houston in Houston, Texas.

The travel grant program is just one of the ways in which SOHO supports training and career development in the field of hematologic oncology. Attending a major scientific meeting that focuses on hematologic malignancies is particularly important for young researchers since it allows them to interact with leading investigators, practitioners and other innovators in this important field. However, SOHO recognizes that travel funds may not be available early in an investigator's career. Therefore, postdoctoral researchers, young clinical researchers and graduate students may apply for travel awards to attend the annual SOHO meeting.

Qualifications and Grant Provisions

Postdoctoral researchers, young clinical researchers and graduate students may apply for travel awards to attend the annual SOHO meeting. Awardees are granted up to US $500 for air travel within the same continent, and up to US $1000 for long-haul air travel. In addition to air travel, hotel accommodations, meeting registration and ground transfers in Houston are paid in advance by SOHO. Other reimbursements may be processed after the meeting such as parking expenses. The recipient will be responsible for ground transportation (outside of airport transfers), meals (outside of those provided at the meeting) and extra room charges (room service, laundry, etc).

Travel grant recipients will share a room with one additional awardee or pay the cost difference for a single room (half of $209 per night plus tax). The SOHO travel grant covers the hotel room for the duration of the annual meeting. Additional hotel days must be paid by the awardee.


Members of SOHO, young investigators, fellows and scientists in training are eligible to apply. A candidate for the award must be a member of the society at the time of application. Note that the price for membership is FREE. To become a member go to to sign up for your Free SOHO membership.
