Child Care Grants

The AMS and the MAA will provide approximately 75 reimbursement grants of US$250 per family to help with the cost of child care for a number of registered participants at 2018 JMM. The funds may be used for child care that frees a parent to participate more fully in JMM. Registration for the JMM as well as membership in the AMS or MAA is required to apply for this program.

Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until November 7, 2017. Final decisions on recipients will be made on or before November 28, 2017. All grant funds will provided in the form of a check which will be issued at JMM. Details on this process will be sent to all recipients before the meeting, but please note that each recipient will be required to submit a completed W-9 form prior to the meeting.

Please note that you are solely responsible for arranging child care. You may use this grant for child care expenses from local resources in San Diego, or for any other form of child care (such as hiring a nanny at home, bringing a caregiver with you to San Diego, etc. This gives you the freedom to use these funds in the way that is most useful to your family. Child care services will not be offered at the JMM nor will the AMS and MAA make recommendations for child care providers. Should you wish to use a local child care provider, you will need to make all the arrangements on your own.

In the cover sheet and application, please ignore any instruction regarding letters of reference, since none are required for this program.

Applicants will be notified of acceptance on or before November 28, 2017.
