    *2007 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 12^th Annual GCMAS Meeting, to be held
    April 11^th -14^th in Springfield, MA. These awards are funded through
    generous donations of GCMAS members and vendors who support movement
    analysis. Each year the society strives to support 6-9 students with $
    500 to offset the expense of attending the conference. Information
    about the 12^th Annual GCMAS Meeting is available online at The number of awards available is yet to
    be determined; however, we hope to offer 7 awards.

    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:
    contribution to scientific content of the meeting (accepted abstract);
    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. Students outside the
    United States are encouraged to compete.

    The application form can be downloaded from the meeting website at by clicking on Application for GCMAS
    Student Award. Applications should be submitted as early as possible,
    and not later than Feb. 23, 2007. Students will be notified of their
    award status by March 9th.

    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,
