Greetings!

A friendly reminder to students that ISB Student grant deadlines are coming
up January 28, 2000.


A total of 16 students received grants last year. Guidelines follow:


************************************************** ******* ****
International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) Student Grant Guidelines


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


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 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 28, 2000. Notification to
applicants will be by March 31, 2000. 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 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 28, 2000. Notification to
applicants will be by March 31, 2000. Recipients will submit a brief report
to the committee which will be published in the Newsletter.
