Travel & Dependent Care Grants
Through the Travel and Dependent Care grants aims to increase diversity at AAPT annual meetings by reducing financial barriers to attendance. Members of AAPT, the National Society of Black Physicist, and the National Society of Hispanic Physicists can apply for funding to offset expenses of attending a meeting. These programs support equitable access to professional development for educators in districts, countries or institutions that cannot support their travel. The Dependent Care grants can be applied towards child-care costs, such as additional babysitting, or elder-care, costs such as a temporary in-home caregiver, ensuring our members won't have to choose between family responsibilities and integration with their professional community.
