Child Care Grant Pilot Program
Creating an inclusive conference is a priority of the Appalachian Studies Association. While all are welcome at the conference, we understand the financial burden of seeking child and/or dependent care during conference events. With this grant program, we hope to offset the cost of the conference for those with dependents. We have a limited amount of funding and submitting an application does not ensure a grant, however we encourage all those with child care expenses to apply. The Appalachian Studies Association does not sanction or recommend child care providers. Further, we do not assume responsibility or liability for child care services of any sort. Selection of a care provider is entirely the applicant’s responsibility.
During our first year of the pilot program, the Appalachian Studies Association will offer grants of up to $100 USD in the form of reimbursement for documented expenses for child care to assist ASA members who have these costs during the conference. The grants are intended to help offset the cost of child care to support attendees with children to attend the conference, however, attendees are wholly responsible for making their own arrangements for child care.
