ICONN Childcare Grants

ICONN 2018 will be providing childcare grants which will be available to ANN members attending and presenting a paper. 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 ICONN2018.

Examples of allowable expenses:

  • Expenses incurred in bringing a care-provider (partner, grandparent,nanny etc) to ICONN2018 to care for child(ren) in Wollongong.
  • Travel of a relative or other care-provider to care for child(ren) at home while parent attends ICONN2018.
  • Additional childcare expenses incurred at home because of ICONN2018 attendance (i.e. additional day of childcare required, longer hours of a babysitter)

Expenses must be documented by receipts where possible.

Changes in Circumstances

If the need for your grant changes between when you applied and the date of ICONN2018, you must notify ICONN2018 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.
