ACNS Child Care Grants

The NSSA is pleased to announce that a limited number of modest child care grants are available to NSSA members with small children who are attending the ACNS meetings. Grants up to $200 will be provided to assist with the additional child care expenses incurred in connection with bringing your child with you to ACNS meetings or in arranging for childcare at home while you attend the meeting. Allowable expenses may include travel for you or your spouse/partner/caregiver, baby sitters, or day care. Pertinent receipts must be provided for all claimed expenses.

To qualify please complete the Application for Child Care Grant and submit it by email to grants@neutronscattering.org. Applications will be considered by a subcommittee of the NSSA Executive Committee. In the event that the number of requests for grants exceeds the funding available, preference will be given to applicants in the early stages of their careers.
