ASB Graduate Student Grant-In-Aid Program
Second and Final Announcement
Request for Letter of Intent

Faculty: Please distribute this message to interested
graduate students. Graduate students: Please distribute this
message among your student colleagues.

An important mission of the American Society of
Biomechanics is to facilitate the development of
biomechanics as a basic and applied science. Because the
students of today will be the leaders of our field in the
future, the professional development of student members
has been a priority of the Society since its inception. As
part of its commitment to student members, the ASB
Executive Board is pleased to announce the initiation of the
ASB Graduate Student Grant-in-Aid Program.
The purpose of the GIA Program is to aid and
encourage student members of ASB in pursuing
biomechanics research by offering a source of research
funding. Awards, which will be distributed on a competitive
basis, are meant to offset the costs directly associated with
conducting the research. Funds may be used for small
equipment items, materials and supplies, and animal or
subject costs, but cannot be used to support travel costs or
salaries. The Executive Board anticipates making 3-5
awards for the first funding period that will begin July 1,
1997. Award amounts are expected to range from $500 to
$2500 for a one-year period. Students must be members of
ASB no later than January 1, 1997 to be eligible for an
award. In addition, expected graduation date should not be
earlier than December, 1997.
A two-stage review process will be used. Interested
students must first submit a letter of intent that is
postmarked no later than October 15,1996. Submissions by
electronic mail (ASCII text) and fax will also be accepted.
The letter of intent should identify: 1) the significance of
and need for the research to be conducted, 2) specific aims
and hypotheses to be examined, and 3) a brief overview of
the methods to be employed. The letter of intent should not
exceed two single-spaced pages. Page margins should not
be less than 2 cm and font size not less than 10 point.
Those who receive a favorable review at this stage will
be invited to submit a full research proposal by March 14,
1997. The first funding cycle will run from July 1, 1997 to
June 30, 1998.

Letters of intent should be submitted to:
