ANZSB Travel Award 

Every calendar year, ANZSB announces awards to support its members attending and presenting at conferences in Australia and New Zealand as well as overseas. Typically, ANZSB will offer awards for the major biomechanics conferences such as the Australasian Biomechanics Conference (ABC), International Society of Biomechanics Congress, and the World Congress of Biomechanics. Other conferences may also be offered depending on the number of biomechanics conferences held in a calendar year. Each successful applicant of the ANZSB Travel Award will receive financial assistance to contribute to costs associated with attending the conference.

ANZSB offers two conference awards per announcement:

  • Student Award for those ANZSB members who are currently enrolled in a biomechanics-related research higher degree

  • Early-Mid Career Researcher (EMCR) Award for those ANZSB members who are no more than 10 year post-PhD, including approved extensions due to career disruptions

 

Award Guidelines:

  • ANZSB members who are currently enrolled in a biomechanics-related research higher degree are eligible for the Student Award.
