57th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics
November 16-20, 2015 • Savannah, Georgia
Child Care Grants for Parents with Young Children
Application Deadline: October 20, 2015
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). Expense 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.
A caregiver/children’s room will be available inside a room located off the Exhibit Area for parents or caregivers to use at no cost to attendees. The room is intended for parents or caregivers who have brought infants or young children to the annual meeting. The room will be furnished with comfortable furniture and with a limited amount of toys, natural organic snacks, and beverages for young children.
Note: Neither APS nor DPP will assume responsibility for providing supervised child care.
