Child Care Grants for Parents with Young Children
Application Deadline: October 7, 2013
Grants of up to $400 per family are available to assist attendees who bring young children to the meeting or who incur extra expense in leaving them at home (i.e., extra daycare or babysitting services). Expenses must be documented by receipts and the application must include an estimate of the expected expenses. If the number of requests exceeds the funding available, we will give preference to applicants in the early stages of their careers, especially postdocs and graduate students. Reimbursement is for travel expenses (car or public transportation) only and does not cover meals. Copies of actual receipts must be submitted. For questions please contact Arati Dasgupta at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 404-4389.
