2005 GCMAS Student Conference Awards

The Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society (GCMAS) is pleased to
announce the availability of Student Conference Awards to support
student participation in the 2005 GCMAS 10th Annual Meeting, to be held
April 6-9 in Portland, OR. 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 award
will be used to cover the cost of the student's conference registration
fees, a tutorial, technical symposium, and shared hotel room.
Information about the 2005 GCMAS Annual Meeting is available on the WWW
at http://www.amrinc.net/gcma/2005/
The number of awards
available is yet to be determined; however, we expect to offer 14 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
(preference will be given to student members); 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 at
Applications should be submitted as early as possible, and not later
than February 1, 2005. Students will be notified of their award status
by February 14. Award winners are required to register by the early
registration deadline February 18th.

Please direct any questions about the award to me at jhouck@ithaca.edu.

On behalf of the GCMAS Education Committee, I encourage all students to
apply for this award, and I look forward to seeing you at the GCMAS
Annual Meeting.

Best regards,

Jeff Houck, PhD, PT

Selection Committee Chairperson
