56th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics
October 27-31, 2014 • New Orleans, Louisiana
Child Care Grants for Parents with Young Children
Application Deadline: September 26, 2014
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.
