Childcare Grants in Support of LSST Meeting Participation


Stacked alternative version of LSST Discovery Alliance logo.

LSST Discovery Alliance is providing grants to support the costs of childcare related to participation in Rubin LSST conferences and meetings, thanks to the generous support of the Heising-Simons Foundation.  These grants are intended to support the costs of essential childcare, above and beyond the ordinary expenses, that would be required to participate in a meeting.   This program aims to increase inclusion of parents with young children in collaboration meetings, and to understand the extent and impact of childcare needs on members of the IceCube and Rubin LSST scientific communities.  Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the funding is fully allocated.  The application form to request childcare support is here.
