Why Support the ASB?

Education and Outreach

We are committed to nurturing the next generation of biomechanists. By supporting ASB, you help us provide grants and scholarships, training programs, and educational resources to aspiring scientists and researchers. Biomechanics studies are an ideal platform for advancing STEM education by seamlessly combining physics, mathematics, and engineering with the study of movement in human and animal systems.

Impactful Collaboration

ASB serves as a platform for interdisciplinary collaboration, bringing together experts from diverse fields such as engineering, physics, mathematics, biology, physical therapy, orthopedics, rehabilitation, and more. Your donation facilitates collaborations that drive innovation and accelerate discoveries in biomechanics that help researchers understand and impact a variety of diseases, ultimately helping our fellow citizens.

Pioneering Research

ASB funds cutting-edge research initiatives aimed at unraveling the complexities of biomechanics. Your contribution directly supports projects exploring movement mechanics, injury prevention, rehabilitation techniques, and more.

How Your Donation Makes a Difference

Travel Awards

The ASB offers complimentary registration to help students cover the costs associated with attending the Annual Meeting.

The ASB Travel Award for my presentation at ASB last year was certainly an honor that boosted my confidence giving my first-ever oral podium! Transitioning from being a clinician (physical therapist) to a researcher has been full of learning moments and challenges, and my experience at ASB was one that has helped solidify my desire to be in the scientific world.  The society is truly full of welcoming people whose perspectives have inspired me to continue to actively participate in the biomechanics community.”

– Julia Manczurowsky


This program pairs undergraduate students with host laboratories for an 8-week period.  Students accepted into this program receive a grant for up to $6000 to cover travel, temporary housing, and living expenses for the summer.

“I was able to make great connections, develop professionally and individually, and was challenged in ways that has prepared me in my field for the future. I can’t thank ASB enough for believing in me and opening a door that will allow me to follow my passion”.
