ANN Childcare Grants

The ANN will be providing childcare grants which will be available to ANN members attending ICONN2016. Grants of up to $300 will be given to presenting authors to assist in offsetting the cost of additional childcare expenses incurred as a result of attending ICONN2016.

Examples of allowable expenses:

  • Expenses incurred in bringing a care-provider (partner, grandparent,nanny etc) to ICONN2016 to care for child(ren) in Canberra.
  • Travel of a relative or other care-provider to care for child(ren) at home while parent attends ICONN2016.
  • Additional childcare expenses incurred at home because of ICONN2016 attendance (i.e. additional day of childcare required, longer hours of a babysitter)

Expenses must be documented by receipts where possible.

Application Misrepresentation

The ICONN2016 committee reserves the right to deny funds to applicants who misrepresent their funding needs.

Changes in Circumstances

If the need for your grant changes between when you applied and the date of ICONN2016, you must notify ICONN2016 to explain. You will be notified quickly if your need is still eligible for funding.

Selecting Recipients

Should a number of applicants exceed the funds allocated by ANN to this initiative, priority will be given to those at the early stages of their careers.
