Childcare Grants

Deadline to apply was March 18, 2015.

Download Application as a limited number of childcare grants available for those attending the 2015 MRS Spring Meeting. Grants of up to $300 were given to selected registered meeting attendees who brought young children or who incurred extra expenses in leaving them at home (i.e., added hours of daycare or babysitting services).

In the event that the number of requests exceeds the available funding, preference will be given to applicants in the early stages of their careers.

Recipients were notified upon approval of their application on or before March 25, 2015. Approved applicants must send a list of expenses and receipts showing the extra expenses incurred, no later than two weeks after the meeting or by April 17, 2015. Please allow up to six weeks to receive your reimbursement.

Please contact Lorri Smiley with additional questions.
