An NIH conference grant will support a scholarship program to help offset costs associated with attending the conference for a limited number of students and for a limited number of post-docs and early career-stage (untenured) faculty who are members of groups underrepresented in the field of motor control. The scholarships will pay the recipient's conference registration fee. Recipients may not be a member of the lab of an ISMC board member or of the conference organizers. Preference will be given to participants who are presenting a poster at the meeting. Applications are now being accepted through May 1. The application form is available at http://homepages.uc.edu/~rileym/PMC/.
