Force and Motion Foundation Scholarships 

The Force and Motion Academic Scholarship, made possible by funds from AMTI, is awarded annually to assist promising graduate students in fields related to multi-axis force measurement and testing.

During the 2015-2016 academic year, the Foundation will award $10,000 scholarships to help defray the qualified higher education expenses of two promising graduate students. Scholarships will be offered on a competitive basis; applications will be judged by the Force and Motion Foundation’s review board based on quality, scientific contribution, and innovation. Current restrictions on non-profit organizations require that all applicants be actively enrolled at a U.S. or international university. 

Travel Awards. The Force and Motion Foundation and AMTI offer several $500 travel awards to aid students with costs associated with attendance at scientific conferences. These Travel Awards are now available to students at universities and colleges outside of the United States!

Applicants must upload a scientific poster related to force measurement and testing,  which has been accepted into a conference, to the Foundation’s Virtual Poster Session and complete a travel award application.

Every uploaded poster may be used to apply for one current or future travel scholarship; however, each student is only allowed one application per review cycle.
