Child Care Grant Program
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.
CLEO will be held in an all-virtual format from September 14-17, 2020, and therefore DLS will not be offering child care grants for CLEO this year. Please check this webpage in January for updates in advance of the APS March Meeting.
