MPSA offers Childcare Scholarships to help defray the cost of childcare for parents or guardians who are current members of MPSA with an income below $75,000 who are staying at the Palmer House or Hilton Chicago Hotel. Childcare must be provided on site, using a bonded, insured childcare provider referred by the Palmer House (e.g. American Childcare Inc). This service must be arranged by the parent or guardian. They recommend reserving it at least two weeks in advance.
Scholarships are available for one-half the cost up to ($250 of a $500 charge) for childcare that takes place during the hours of the conference and during the Business Meeting and the President's Reception. These scholarships are provided on a first-come, first served basis. Reimbursement is made after the conference, when MPSA is provided with an itemized copy of the receipt from the childcare service. The application deadline is March 15th.
