The Nuclear & Plasma Sciences Society is offering child care reimbursement of up to $400 per family as a Pilot Program to assist conference attendees who incur additional childcare expenses by attending an NPSS conference. Limited funds are available and preference will be given to applicants in the early stages of their careers who are IEEE NPSS members. Up to five candidates will be selected per conference. Further information is available on the NPSS web site.


Allowable expenses include:

  • Additional babysitting or child-care expenses incurred in leaving a child at home while parent(s) attend the conference
  • Transportation expenses for a childcare provider to care for child(ren) during the conference (e.g., an adult or relative not sharing your residence)

Expenses must be documented on the standard IEEE Expense Report. Documented expenses, together with receipts, must be received by the conference finance chair/treasurer within two weeks of the completion of the conference. If documentation is not received within 2 weeks following the end of the conference no reimbursement will be made. All reimbursements will be made after the conference.
