    ASB Graduate Student Grant-In-Aid Program
    Year 2
    Second Announcement
    Request for Letters of Intent
    DEADLINE: OCTOBER 15, 1997

    An important mission of the American Society of Biomechanics is to
    facilitate the development of biomechanics as a basic and applied science.
    Last year the ASB initiated the Graduate Student Grant-in-Aid Program, the
    purpose of which is to aid and encourage student members of ASB in pursuing
    biomechanics research by offering a source of research funding. Awards,
    which will be distributed on a competitive basis, are meant to offset the
    costs directly associated with conducting the research. Funds may be used
    for small equipment items, materials and supplies, and animal or subject
    costs, but cannot be used to support travel costs or salaries. The
    Executive Board anticipates making 3-5 awards for the second funding period
    that will begin July 1, 1998. Award amounts are expected to range from
    $500 to $2500 for a one-year period. Students must be members of ASB or
    have a membership application pending no later than October 15, 1997 to be
    eligible for an award. In addition, expected graduation date should not be
    earlier than December, 1998.

    A two-stage review process will be used. Interested students must
    first submit a letter of intent that is postmarked no later than October
    15,1997. Submissions by electronic mail (ASCII text) and fax will also be
    accepted. The letter of intent should identify: 1) the significance of and
    need for the research to be conducted, 2) specific aims and hypotheses to
    be examined, and 3) a brief overview of the methods to be employed. The
    letter of intent should not exceed two single-spaced pages. Page margins
    should not be less than 2 cm and font size not less than 10 point.

    Those who receive a favorable review at this stage will be invited to
    submit a full research proposal by Monday, March 3, 1998. The funding
    cycle will run from July 1, 1998 to June 30, 1999.

    Letters of intent should be submitted to:
