Grants of up to $500 are available to assist DLS members who are bringing children to CLEO or FiO/LS or who incur extra expenses in leaving them at home (e.g., extra daycare or babysitting services). 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 the APS-DLS Secretary-Treasurer. We will provide more information about specific deadlines for Child Care Grants to assist with attending CLEO in San Jose, CA (May 5-10, 2019) about two months before the conference begins.
