    First Announcement: 2002 GCMAS Student Conference Awards

    [This message is being cross-posted on multiple lists. Please accept an
    apology for any duplication in distribution.]

    The Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society (GCMAS) is pleased to
    announce the availability of thirteen GCMAS Student Conference Awards to
    support student participation in the 2002 GCMAS Annual Meeting, to be held
    on April 17-20, 2002 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. These awards are being
    funded through a grant from The Whitaker Foundation, which provides support
    of conferences that enhance the field of biomedical engineering. Each
    student award of $615 will be used to cover the expense of registering for
    two tutorials, the conference, and a Saturday clinical symposium. The
    balance of the award will be credited to the student's hotel
    room. Information about the 2002 GCMAS Annual Meeting is available on the
    WWW at

    Award recipients will be selected on a competitive basis from among the
    pool of student applicants. Application is open to full-time and part-time
    students in biomedical engineering and other disciplines relevant to
    movement analysis. Membership in the GCMAS is not a requirement for an
    award. The selection criteria will include: motivation to attend the
    meeting (communicated through a statement on the award application); area
    of study (preference will be given to engineering students); membership in
    the GCMAS; involvement in a movement analysis laboratory; level of
    participation in the conference (presenting or co-authoring a paper); and
    academic performance.

    The application form and detailed instructions for applying can be
    downloaded from the meeting WWW page
    ( Applications should be submitted as early
    as possible, and not later than February 1, 2002. Please direct any
    questions about this award to me at

    We look forward to receiving your application, and to seeing you at the
    2002 GCMAS Annual Meeting.

    Best regards,
