The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) is pleased to offer childcare support awards for postdoctoral scholars to attend the 19th NPA Annual Conference, which will be held at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, April 16 - 18, 2021*. The awards will be used to cover childcare expenses while attending the Annual Conference up to the limit of the award. Award amounts will vary, but the maximum amount awarded will be $500. You may also apply for the travel award in addition to the childcare award. If you receive both awards, the maximum amount awarded will be $1000.
Awards will be competitively allocated and limited to one per institution. The number of awards granted will depend on the estimated cost of each applicant, matching funds available, and the amount of funds raised by the NPA. Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek matching funds from their institutions and to include that information in their applications.
Applications will be accepted through Thursday, October 8, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. ET. Click here for details on submitting a proposal.
*Please note that the NPA appreciates the highly dynamic nature of the COVID-19 pandemic; and the NPA will continue to monitor
the situation closely in order to make informed decisions regarding travel.
