Child Care Grant 

The American Meteorological Society is offering child care grants of up to $400 per family to assist conference attendees who will incur additional expenses by virtually attending and/or presenting at the Annual Meeting. Limited funds are available and preference is given to applicants in the early stages of their career.  As a secondary criterion, preference will be given to applicants who explain clearly why a grant to support childcare, dependent care or their own assistance is necessary.  To apply, please fill in the Child Care Grant Form and email it to Christine Card, [email protected], by November 16th.  

Reimbursement distribution:  Mid-February 2021
