Child Care Grants

There are a limited number of child care grants for INTERMAG 2020 Conference participants who are bringing young children to the meeting or who incur extra expenses in leaving their children at home. The grant is one per participant and can be up to $400 USD for children over 5 years of age and up to $800 USD for children under 5 years of age.

  • Daycare expenses at the meeting
  • Extra daycare expenses incurred at home because the primary caregiver was attending the meeting (e.g., overtime at a daycare center, cost of a sitter)
