[This message is being cross-posted on multiple lists. Please accept an
apology for any duplication in distribution.]

The Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society (GCMAS) is pleased to
announce the availability of Student Conference Awards to support student
participation its 8th Annual Meeting, to be held on May 7-10, 2003 in
Wilmington, Delaware. These awards are being funded through a grant from
The Whitaker Foundation, which provides support of conferences that enhance
the field of biomedical engineering. Each student award will be used to
cover the expense of registering for tutorials, the conference, and a
Saturday clinical symposium (at student member rates), and the student's
hotel room. Information about the 2003 GCMAS Annual Meeting is available on
the WWW at http://gait.aidi.udel.edu/gaitlab/gait2003.html . The number of
awards available is yet to be determined, but in previous years we have
been able to grant 10-15 awards.

These awards are available to full-time and part-time students in
biomedical engineering and other disciplines relevant to movement analysis.
Membership in the GCMAS is not a requirement for an award. Award
recipients will be selected on a competitive basis using selection criteria
that include: motivation to attend the meeting (communicated through a
statement on the award application); area of study (preference will be
given to engineering students); membership in the GCMAS; involvement in a
movement analysis laboratory; level of participation in the conference
(presenting or co-authoring a paper); and academic performance.

The application form and detailed instructions for applying can be
downloaded from the meeting WWW page
(http://gait.aidi.udel.edu/gaitlab/gait2003.html). Applications should be
submitted as early as possible, and not later than February 1, 2003. Please

We look forward to receiving your application, and to seeing you at the
2003 GCMAS Annual Meeting.
