    Reminder: 2003 GCMAS Student Conference Award applications are due February
    1, 2003

    Original Announcement (posted 1/9/2003):

    The Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society (GCMAS) is pleased to
    announce the availability of Student Conference Awards to support student
    participation its 8th Annual Meeting, to be held on May 7-10, 2003 in
    Wilmington, Delaware. 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 will be used to
    cover the expense of registering for tutorials, the conference, and a
    Saturday clinical symposium (at student member rates), and the student's
    hotel room. Information about the 2003 GCMAS Annual Meeting is available on
    the WWW at . The number of
    awards available is yet to be determined, but in previous years we have
    been able to grant 10-15 awards.

    These awards are available 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. Award
    recipients will be selected on a competitive basis using selection criteria
    that 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, though this is **not** a prerequisite
    for receiving an award); 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, 2003. Please
    direct any questions about this award to me at

    We look forward to receiving your application, and to seeing you at the
    2003 GCMAS Annual Meeting.
