Grants of up to $300 per family are available for IEEE ICC attendees who are IEEE ComSoc members and who are bringing small children to the conference or who incur extra expenses in leaving their children at home. The grants will be given as a reimbursement for expenses, however, attendees are responsible for making their own arrangements for child care. If requests exceed available funding, or if additional funding becomes available, preference will be given to students, recent graduates, or new entrants to the communications field who are presenting at the conference.
Recipients of a childcare grant must submit receipts for reimbursable expenses (for example, an invoice submitted by the child care provider)
Reimbursements will be distributed after the conference, after receipt of documentation.
Reimbursement forms will be distributed to recipients at the IEEE ComSoc booth
