Student members of ISB are eligible for the following three new grants.
A number of competitive grants will be awarded each year.
All grant amounts are shown in US dollars. Application forms are at
the end of this document.

1) The Matching Dissertation Grant Program:
There will be several competitive grants of $2000 made for doctoral
dissertation research. A condition is that the applicant will have a
commitment from her/his institution or another source to provide a
further matching $2000. This program is applicable to those who are
doctoral candidates (within 2 years of starting their doctoral degree)
and are seeking assistance with costs of their dissertation research.
Applications should include the following:
a) a 3 page summary which includes the purpose, reference to key
related literature, study design, methods, timetable for the
measurements and budget.
b) CV (resume) of the applicant: 2-3 pages in length (include list of
publications, list of course work, tests, etc. which the applicant
may have taken. In case there are results such as grade point
average these should be included).
c) a document from her/his institution or other source which ensures
provision of the matching $2000
d) a one page recommendation from the applicant's supervisor who
must also be an ISB member at the time of application.
Applications are to be received by January 15, 1998. Notification to
applicants will be by March 25, 1998. Recipients will present results at
the ISB Congress and acknowledge ISB support in any publications. A
report to the council will include accounting of how funds were spent.
Recipients will be encouraged to publish their work in one of the
ISB-affiliated journals.

2) The International Travel Grant Program:
In order to allow student members to travel abroad to experience science
in other cultures, we will offer several grants of $2000 for travel which is
related to biomechanics research. This program is applicable to
those who are students at the application deadline and are members of
ISB. A report on the accomplishments during the trip will be expected
by the Executive Council. Applications should include:
a) 3 page proposal which includes the purpose of the visit, timetable,
activities to be involved, the total budget for the visit (including other
financial assistance, etc.)
b) CV (resume) of the applicant: 2-3 pages in length (include list of
publications, list of course work, tests, etc. which the applicant
may have taken. In case there are results such as grade point
average these should be included).
c) a document from the host institution verifying support for the visit
d) a recommendation letter of support for the travel from the applicant's
supervisor who must also be an ISB member at the time of application.
Applications are to be received by January 15, 1998. Notification to
applicants will be by March 25, 1998. Recipients will submit a brief report
to the committee which will be published in the Newsletter.

3) The Congress Travel Grant Program:
This grant is offered only in the years of ISB Congress, therefore, this grant
will be offered in 1999. ISB Congresses provide a wonderful opportunity for
exchange of information and for meeting other scientists who can be influential
in the development of new directions. By virtue of the need to move the
congresses between different continents, it is often very difficult for students
to afford to travel to the Congresses or to pay the registration fee if they can
travel. Starting with the 1999 ISB Congress in Calgary, we will offer several
travel grants of $1000 to student members who will be presenting their
research results at ISB Congresses. Applications should include the following:
a) the proposal should have a maximum length of 3-4 pages including the
abstract and the info of its acceptance, the total budget for the travel etc.
b) CV (resume) of the applicant: 2-3 pages in length (include list of
publications, list of course work, tests, etc. which the applicant
may have taken. In case there are results such as grade point
average these should be included).
c) a one page recommendation from the applicant's supervisor who must
also be an ISB member at the time of application.
Recipients will submit a brief report to the committee which will be published
in the Newsletter. Deadlines for this grant will be announced in 1998.
