    ASB Graduate Student Grant-In-Aid Program
    Year 3: Third and Final Announcement

    Request for Letters of Intent
    DEADLINE: OCTOBER 15, 1998

    The ASB Graduate Student Grant-in-Aid Program is now in its second year
    of operation. Three proposals from the first year of the GIA program were
    funded in July, 1997. The proposal review process for the second year was
    completed in June, 1998, and four applicants were notified shortly
    thereafter that they will receive support from the program. We are now
    ready to begin the proposal submission process for the third year of the GIA

    The purpose of the Graduate Student Grant-in-Aid Program 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 third funding period that will begin July 1, 1999. 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, 1998 to be eligible for an award. In addition,
    expected graduation date should not be earlier than December, 1999.

    A two-stage review process will be used. Interested students must
    first submit a letter of intent that is postmarked no later than October
    15,1998. 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 2.5 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 1, 1999. The funding cycle
    will run from July 1, 1999 to June 30, 2000.

    Letters of intent should be submitted to:

    Philip E. Martin, Ph.D.
