The Force and Motion Foundation has announced a new 2019 Travel Awards program, increasing their scholarship from $500 to $1000 for 2019.

This program offers up to seven $1000 travel scholarships each quarter to assist students with costs for travel to scientific conferences. The travel awards are open to applicants worldwide, and to apply, you will need either a poster for a poster session or an abstract for a podium presentation.

The Foundation allows for one submission per year, per individual, with a total maximum award to be granted per individual of $2,000 over their lifetime (2 submissions).

This is a fantastic opportunity for applicants to receive such a scholarship, and we would highly recommend students in the UK to apply.

To apply, you will need to:

1. Upload a scientific poster or abstract related to multi-axis force measurement and testing to the Force and Motion Foundation website. PDF format is required. Only posters or podium presentation abstracts that have been accepted into a conference may be submitted. If your abstract includes figures, they can be in the abstract file that you upload. Posters and abstracts from past conferences are eligible as long as the applicant is a currently enrolled student.

2. Complete a travel award application, including a text abstract of up to 250 words. The text abstract must be submitted in English; for poster submissions, the preferred language is English but other languages are acceptable.

All submitted materials will be judged by the Foundation review board based on quality, contribution, and innovation. Travel award recipients will be posted on the Foundation’s Facebook page and Twitter feed, and will be notified at the email address associated with their user account. Travel awards are expressly for students enrolled at a university at the time of the award (the end of the calendar quarter when the application was submitted).

Good luck to all applicants!
