Student Grant Guidelines

Student members of ISB are eligible for the following three grants. A
number of competitive grants
will be awarded each year. All grant amounts are shown in US dollars.

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
and are seeking assistance with costs of their dissertation research.
Applications should include the following:
a) a 3 page summary which includes the purpose, hypotheses, reference
to key related literature,
study design, methods, timetable for the measurements and budget.
b) CV of the applicant: 2-3 pages in length (include list of
publications, current grade point average,
results of any standardized tests that the applicant has taken (ie.
GRE)).
c) a document from her/his institution or other source which ensures
provision of the
matching $2000
d) a one page recommendation from the dissertation advisor who must
also be an ISB member at the
time of application.
Applications are to be received by January 15, 1999. Notification to
applicants will be by March 25, 1999.
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. 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 in, the total
budget for the visit (including other financial assistance, etc.)
b) CV of the applicant: 2-3 pages in length (include list of
publications, current grade point average, results
of any standardized tests that the applicant has taken (ie. GRE)).
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, 1999. Notification to
applicants will be by March 25, 1999.
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 a
copy of the submitted abstract and,
the total budget for the travel.
b) CV of the applicant: 2-3 pages in length (include list of
publications, current grade point average, results
of any standardized tests that the applicant has taken (ie. GRE)).
c) a one page recommendation from the 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. Applications are to
be received by January 15, 1999. Notification to applicants will be by
March 25, 1999.
