The Force and Motion Foundation is a non-profit organization, fully funded by AMTI to support students in fields related to multi-axis force measurement and testing. Each year, the Foundation awards more than $30,000 in academic scholarships and travel awards in an effort to help both U.S. and international graduate students become the scientific leaders of tomorrow. The Foundation also serves as creator and curator of the Virtual Poster Session, an international resource for information exchange and networking within the academic community.
