Those for whom attending the SMT annual conference incurs additional family care costs are invited to apply for a Family Care Grant. 

Purpose

SMT offers a limited number of grants to help defray family care costs for those whose attendance at the Annual Meeting incurs extra family care expenses. Please note that SMT itself does not provide for, arrange for, or recommend any specific family care services.

These grants are made possible in part by donations from the SMT-Forward campaign.

Eligibility

Any current SMT member with additional family care expenses caused by participating in the annual meeting may apply.

Award

Typically up to 4 awards are given, with a maximum award of $400.

Application Process

To apply for a family care grant, please fill out the online Family Care Grant application form.  The application asks for a funding statement, which should include information about any funding available to you for the conference and specific expenses (including dollar amounts) for which you are applying.  The application also asks for a family care statement, which should explain the circumstances of family care you will encounter in order to participate in the conference.

For any questions, please contact the SMT Executive Director.
