Research Travel Grants
A Research Travel Grant is offered to foster collaborative research and interaction among scientists by helping to offset the cost of travel to a host institution. All ASB regular members are eligible to apply. Travel and lodging costs are covered. Budget requests may be up to $1000. Matching funds from the candidate’s or host’s institution are desirable, but not required. This grant is not for travel to the annual ASB meeting.

graduate student grant-in-aid program
The purpose of this program is to support ASB student members pursuing biomechanics research by offering a source of research funding. The grants are distributed on a competitive basis and are intended to offset the costs directly associated with conducting research. Funds may be used for small equipment items, materials and supplies, and animal or participant costs, but cannot be used to support travel costs, salaries or indirect costs of research. ASB anticipates awarding 3-5 grants of $2000 each for a one-year period beginning in May each year.
