The American Society of Biomechanics is committed to building a professional community that respects and promotes diversity and inclusion. To build on our commitment to promote enhanced engagement in the Society of underrepresented groups, ASB is pleased to announce a novel summer internship program aimed at providing research opportunities to students historically underrepresented and underserved in biomechanics.
The program pairs undergraduate students with host laboratories for an 8-week period in the Summer 2023
Students accepted into this program will receive a grant for up to $7000 which may be used to cover travel, temporary housing, and living expenses for the summer. In addition, all participants will receive an ASB student membership for one year. ASB anticipates funding 5 internships in this inaugural phase. Please note that the awards do not support any kind of indirect costs of research.
