About the Award
The Carol Briggs-Smalley Scholarship Award was set-up in 2015 to honour the significant contributions Carol Briggs made to the discipline of laboratory haematology.
Each year ICSH seeks applications from Medical Technologists and Medical Laboratory Scientists on laboratory haematology projects particularly those that are related to standardization in laboratory haematology. Projects related to standardization in cellular analysis, haemostasis, flow cytometry, haemoglobinopathies and molecular haematology are all considered to be suitable for the award.
It is expected that as part of the award the project results and findings are published in a suitable peer reviewed laboratory haematology journal and are also presented at an appropriate international haematology meeting.
An amount up to Euro 5000 is allocated to the successful applicant for expenses related to the project.
Applications for the 2022 Award are expected to open mid-2022, here - https://www.icsh.org/awards
