Child Care Grant Program

Grants of up to $500 are available to assist DLS members who will attend FiO/LS (Washington D.C. September 17-21, 2017) and need assistance to defray extra expenses in bringing children or leaving them at home (e.g., extra daycare or babysitting services). To receive funds, applicants must submit a request no later than August 31, 2017. Grant recipients will be notified prior to the conference. Funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. In the event that the number of requests for grants exceeds the funding available, preference will be given to applicants in the early stages of their careers.

Eligible costs include babysitters (onsite at the conference location or at home) and airfare/hotel for a caregiver to accompany the child to the conference location. Meals, toys, onsite transportation and tickets to museums or other attractions are not eligible for reimbursement. Grant recipients are solely responsible for their choice of child care provider; APS-DLS does not endorse any child care providers.

To apply, please complete the application form and send it to:
