2018 CCCC Childcare Grants

In collaboration with the Feminist Caucus, CCCC is pleased to offer up to 10 small grants of no more than $300/attendee that can be used to offset the costs of childcare at the 2018 annual convention, either for use with approved providers or for other childcare needs as described by the applicant.  Providers suggested by the Kansas City convention bureau include A1 Tiny Tots and Seeking Sitters. Priority for these funds will be given to contingent faculty, graduate students, and/or other members demonstrating financial need.

To apply for funds, please complete the Online Application Form by January 31, 2018.

Criteria for Evaluating Grant Applications

The committee will review the applications submitted and will rank them, prioritizing the following criteria:

  • discussion of financial need and proposal for how funds will be used
  • how the funding award will enable the applicant to attend and participate in the convention
  • how participation in the convention will advance the applicant’s  personal and professional goals
  • how the award will support applicant’s contributions to the profession and the CCCC organization

CCCC is pleased to provide up to ten grants of no more than $300 to recipients. CCCC assumes no responsibility for any liabilities associated with childcare or childcare providers.

Selected recipients will be notified by the CCCC Feminist Caucus by February 15, 2018. Selected recipients will then work with the CCCC Liaison to submit paperwork required to receive funding. Funds will be disbursed in advance of the CCCC 2018 conference.

Procedures for Award Recipients

After the convention, grant recipients should submit a one-page summary indicating how the funds were used and how the funding support the recipient’s participation in convention activities. Please submit the funding report to Feminist Caucus co-chair Kate Pantelides by April 30, 2018.
