EWASS 2018: RAS grants for carers

The RAS is offering a carers' grant scheme for the 2018 European Week of Astronomy and Space Science (EWASS 2018), to give eligible delegates a grant towards additional costs of paying for care when attending the conference.


Applications must be submitted by Monday 19 March 2018, and confirmation of eligibility will be given within one week of this deadline. Payment will be made on completion of a short form following attendance at the event. Retrospective awards will not normally be considered, and funds are limited, so we will prioritise those on lower incomes, for example students or delegates retired from employment.


The grant is available both for childcare, and for other caring responsibilities. It is a requirement of the grant for those applying to provide proof of the cost of care, for example a receipt for nursery payments incurred, or a letter from the Department of Work and Pensions (for UK applicants) proving that they are in possession of Carer's Allowance.


Please apply using the following pdfgrant application form.
