Child Care Reimbursement
The 2017 Conference is offering child-care reimbursement of up to $400 per family to assist conference attendees who incur additional childcare expenses by attending the conference. This program, funded by the NPSS AdCom, will also be carried out at other NPSS Conferences during 2017. Limited funds are available, and preference will be given to applicants in the early stages of their careers who are IEEE NPSS members. Up to five candidates will be selected.
Allowable expenses include:
Expenses must be documented by receipts. An expense report, accompanied by receipts, must be received by the conference finance chair within two weeks of the end of the conference (August 4, 2017). If the report is not received by that date, no reimbursement will be made. All reimbursements will be made after the conference.
To apply, an attendee must register for the conference technical sessions, and then complete the application form to request reimbursement for child care. The application must be received no later than June 2, 2017. Applicants will be notified whether they qualify for these funds within two weeks after the deadline. Due to limited funding, it is likely that not all qualified applicants will be eligible for reimbursement. The application form is available on the website for the 2017 NSREC.
