Child/Dependent Care Grant Application


The financial burden of child and dependent care affects the Society’s members. The impact can be so great that it prevents attendance at meetings, especially for early career scientists or those at small institutions with limited funding. The AAS and its Divisions are committed to helping members with dependents attend meetings; therefore, members may apply for subsidized dependent care services during a meeting, for use either at the meeting location or at home.

The information collected via this form will be used by the AAS Child/Dependent Care Grants Committee to determine eligibility for child/dependent care subsidies for the 236th AAS meeting to be held in Madison, Wisconsin, 31 May - 4 June 2020. Applicants must register for the 236th AAS meeting by the Child/Dependent Care Grants deadline of 1 May 2020.

NOTE: You must be logged in as an AAS member to submit this form; if you haven't already signed in, please click the "login" link in the warning message above, or click the "Sign In" link at upper right and choose "Sign In to View Member Content."

Please read the Child/Dependent Care Grant guidelines before applying.
