- Daycare expenses at the site of the meeting

If the number of requests for grants exceeds the funding, preference will be given to applicants in the early stages of their careers.
CSWP reserves the right to deny funds to applicants who misrepresent their funding needs.
Changes in Circumstances
If the need for your grant changes between when you applied and the date of the Meeting, you must notify CSWP to explain. You will be notified if your need is still eligible for funding.
