232nd AAS Meeting Child & Dependent Care Grants
Child/Dependent Care Grants
The AAS does not want the financial burden of child or dependent care to impact members' ability to attend meetings, especially for early career scientists or those at small institutions with limited funding. To help, members may apply for a Child/Dependent Care Grant to subsidize dependent care services during a meeting, for use either at the meeting location or at home.
For the 232nd AAS meeting in Denver, Colorado, in June 2018, applications for child/dependent care grants are due 15 May 2018.
If requests exceed available funding, preference will be given to those in the early stages of their careers. If you have questions about the child/dependent care grants, please contact Sara Asfaw at 202-328-2010 x103.
