61st Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics
October 21-25, 2019 • Fort Lauderdale, Florida

DPP Child Care Grants for Parents with Young Children

Application Deadline: Wednesday, October 2, 2019

Applications are invited for grants to facilitate access to the APS-DPP meeting in October. Grants of up to $400 per individual or family will be available to assist DPP registrants who bring young children to the meeting or who incur extra expense in leaving dependents at home (i.e., extra daycare, babysitting, or caregiver services), or who need to fund additional activities or services to address accessibility issues.

Applications must include a credible estimate of the expected expenses. Expenses must be documented by receipts. 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.

A caregiver room will also be provided with snacks, toys, refrigerator, as well as a lactation room.

Reimbursement covers travel expenses (car or public transportation) or other costs to be considered, but does not cover meals. Receipts for reimbursement must be received by Friday, December 22, 2019. Copies of actual receipts must be submitted.

2019 Committee members: Richard Buttery (Chair), Mingsheng Wei, Jeremiah Williams
