We recognize that full participation in the workshop, whether in person or virtual, often requires compromises with family obligations, and that this is a difficult and complicated time for many people. We have reserved some funds from our sponsoring NSF grant (1712718) to help participants accommodate their needs for dependent care, so that they may more fully participate in the workshop. These can be used to, for example (but not limited to), providing travel for dependents or additional caregivers; arranging for caregiving help at home; bringing in outside caregivers; or any other arrangements that can help a participant engage more fully with the workshop.

Applications are welcome regardless of in-person or online attendance.

To provide sufficient time for making arrangements, applications are due 29 Aug 2022. Award decisions will be made no later than 2 Sep 2022. Applications are welcome from any attendee and awards will be flat monetary amount, not a reimbursement of costs. The expected award amount is on the order of $500 and will generally be in the form of an honorarium payment made after the workshop, from the NSF grant PI institution, The Catholic University of America. If funds are needed prior to the workshop, other arrangements may be possible.
