Support for Conference Attendance Challenges (Child Care and More)

Support for Conference Attendance Challenges (Child- or other Dependent-Care)

Stipends to $500 are available to students, postdocs, early career scientists, or other ASMS members who require financial assistance in order to be able to attend an ASMS conference due to challenges of child-care or other dependent-care costs.

ASMS does not provide childcare at the annual conference. This funding program was established to provide direct support to parents (or those caring for dependents) that could not otherwise attend the meeting without additional support to offset costs due to extra child- or dependent-care.

Why an ASMS member might request this support?

Unable to attend the annual conference without additional financial support to help cover childcare or other dependent-care costs.
