If you are a postdoc caregiver seeking reimbursement for child care, please answer the following questions. For the 2021 calendar year, the childcare fund will be $45,000, of which $22,500 will be distributed in June 2021 and $22,500 will be distributed in December. In 2022, the childcare fund will be $50,000 and will also be distributed biannually. With this fund, we aim to distribute meaningful assistance to postdocs in the most need. The following questions will allow us to distribute these funds equitable. Please be honest. You may be asked to attest that the information you provide is accurate.

Our reimbursement system consists of credits added based on the criteria below. As we do not yet know the spread of incomes for postdoc families, a sliding scale and cutoff will be determined after collection of this information. As determining costs of care for special needs children and adults is difficult to generalize, we will assist these families on a case-by-case basis. Please submit responses by May 21st 2021. If you have any questions, please email the Family Friendly workgroup.
