AAPT Child and Dependent Care Grants
AAPT has small grants up to $400 available for AAPT national meeting attendees who are bringing small children to a national meeting or who incur extra expenses in leaving their children at home (i.e., extra daycare or babysitting services) in order to attend a national meeting. In addition, small grants up to $400 are available to national meeting attendees who are responsible for dependent care (elderly parents, adult children with disabilities, etc) or need assistance at the meeting because of a disability.
Applications must be received by December 6, 2017 to be considered by the Child and Dependent Care Grant Selection Committee for a grant associated with the 2018 Winter Meeting. 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 and to those whose participation in the meeting is critical to their professional development. As a secondary criterion, preference will be given to applicants who explain clearly why a grant to support childcare, dependent care, or their own assistance is necessary. Furthermore, preference will be given to those who have not received funding within the last year. If you are interested in sharing childcare, please fill out the Room/Ride and Daycare Share List Form to connect with other parents.
