233rd AAS Meeting Child & Dependent Care
Onsite Childcare with KiddieCorp
Onsite childcare will be available during the 233rd AAS meeting, 6–10 January 2019, through KiddieCorp. The cost of care is $8 per hour per child and the advance registration deadline is 11 December. Learn more and register online.
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 grant to subsidize dependent care services during a meeting, for use either at the meeting location or at home. Applications for these grants are due 30 November.
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.
