    *2006 GCMAS Student Conference Awards*

    The Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society (GCMAS) is pleased to
    announce the availability of Student Conference Awards to support
    student participation in the 1^st Annual Joint ESMAC & GCMAS Meeting, to
    be held September 28-30, 2006 in Amsterdam. These awards are funded
    through generous donations of GCMAS members and vendors who support
    movement analysis. Each year the society strives to support 9 students
    with $ 500 to offset the expense of attending the conference.
    Information about the 1^st Annual Joint ESMAC & GCMAS Meeting is
    available online at The number of awards
    available is yet to be determined; however, we hope to offer 9 awards.
    This year preference will be given to those students applying from the
    United States, however, all applicants will be considered for an award.

    These awards are available to full-time and part-time students in
    clinical and technical areas 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); membership in the GCMAS (preference will be
    given to student members); involvement in a movement analysis
    laboratory; level of participation in the conference (presenting or
    co-authoring a paper); and academic performance. Preference is
    typically given to those students contributing to the scientific content
    of the meeting by presenting their research. To encourage students from
    the United States to attend, preference will also be given to those
    students, however, all applicants will be considered for an award.

    The application form and detailed instructions for applying can be
    downloaded from the meeting website by clicking on GCMAS Student Award.
    Applications should be submitted as early as possible, and not later
    than May 17, 2006. Students will be notified of their award status by
    June 7th.

    Please direct any questions about the award to me at

    On behalf of the GCMAS Education Committee, I encourage all students to
    apply for this award, and I look forward to seeing you at the GCMAS
    Annual Meeting.

    Best regards,
