We are very excited to announce a new initiative in the Northwest Chapter. We have secured funding that enables us to start a new travel and research award program for the students in our chapter. The initiative is being led by one of our board members, Katie Taylor. The call for applications for the student research funding is linked below. The student travel award program will go out later this fall, so be on the lookout.
Applications for student research awards are to be completed and submitted no later than 5pm PST on September 30th, 2016. The purpose of the award is to provide students with financial support to conduct scientific research that is relevant to the area ofphysical activity and inactivity, exercise, sports, and sedentary lifestyles andin the context of addressing U.S. and global health objectives. Up to two awards will be made for a total of up to $2,000 this year. Both undergraduate and graduate students who are current ACSM Northwest members are eligible to apply.
