Applications for Caregiver Grants

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: February 15, 2019 at 11:59 PM EST

AOS is pleased to provide Caregiver Grants to help attendees of the AOS 2019 meeting accommodate their various dependent-care needs. See the Family Resources page on the AOS 2019 meeting website for more details.

Conditions and eligibility:
  • Any conference registrant is eligible. Preference will be given to early career conference-attendees who are presenting.
  • Applicants can apply for general travel awards as well as caregiver awards.
  • Recipients of a caregiver award are eligible to apply for another caregiver award two years from their successful application (e.g., received award in 2019, eligible to apply again in 2021). The maximum number of awards is three (3).
  • Funds may be used in any manner to support dependent care—to cover the cost of travel to the conference venue for an accompanying adult caregiver, the cost of dependent care at the conference venue, the cost of additional dependent care at home during the conference, the cost of an unshared hotel room or differential cost of a two bedroom hotel suite, etc. Applicants may also request AOS caregiver grants to cover the Companion/Guest registration fee, which would allow the caregiver to attend all regular events at the conference (see Registration page for details), or funds to cover specific ticketed events for caregivers and dependents (e.g., tickets for the closing event at the Alaska Museum). Funds cannot be used for conference registration or travel for the applicant.
  • You do not need to register for the annual meeting before submitting an abstract; however, you are required to register within 30 days of receiving notification of your award. NOTE: Awardees will be notified ahead of the March 15 Early Bird registration deadline to ensure that applicants can take advantage of the discounted rate.
How to Apply
Applications must be submitted using the online Member Portal link below. Application materials include a ½-page written description (not to exceed 250 words) of the need for support and how the funds will be used.
