DPP Families and Meeting Accessibility Grants

Applications Open: Monday, August 28, 2023
Application Deadline: Friday, September 22, 2023

Grants of up to $500 per family are available to assist DPP registrants who bring young children to the meeting or who incur extra expense when leaving children or live-in elders at home (i.e., extra daycare, babysitting services, or elder care). Post deadline applications may be considered by the Families and Meeting Accessibility Committee.

Expenses must be documented by receipts and the application must include an estimate of the expected expenses. If the number of requests exceeds the funding available, we will give preference to early career applicants, especially postdocs or graduate students.

Reimbursement covers travel expenses only (car or public transportation), meals not included. Receipts for reimbursement must be received by Friday, December 1, 2023. Copies of actual receipts must be submitted to Jeremiah Williams.
